Nail Polish on Carpet

My daughter dropped red nail polish on my beige carpet and I don't know how to clean it.

Nail Polish on Carpet

Way #1-

Use Non acetone nail polish remover and hot water. Use the nail polish right on the spot. Always keep the stain wet. Use small circular motions and scrub. Don't push too hard or you may find yourself with a larger spot than you started with. Then put the hot water on it and keep scrubbing. This should work. Be cautious, nail polish remover may take the color out of your carpet.



Follow the advice in #1, but instead, use nail polish remover, hydrogen peroxide, carpet cleaner, water, and hair spray and it might get it out.

Way #3-

Use a lot of water, keep the stain wet! Use about 15-20 squirts of hair spray and 3-5 splashes of rubbing alcohol. Scrub gently with a small scrub brush. Blot with paper towels. Repeat as necessary. Don't forget to keep pouring water during the process.


Windex, nail polish remover, shaving cream, hairspray, and lots of water. It might make you sick from the fumes, but the key is persistence. Continue to scrub and scrub and add stuff and most should come out.


Use one tablespoon of ammonia and 1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide.

Nail Polish on Carpet

When my cat knocked a glass tray off my dresser and a bottle of nail polish broke in the carnage, the only thing that would completely remove it from the carpet was acetone. Regular nail polish remover got a lot of it up, but only acetone got it ALL up. You can buy acetone in Walmart next to the nail polish remover, or in beauty supply stores in smaller amounts than you can buy at a hardware store. (08/25/2010)
