I spilled dark wine fingernail polish on my light bedroom carpet. Panic! I grabbed polish remover and poured on it and rubbed with a rag and made a worse mess. By now it was almost dry. Help! Someone said to use Windex of all things. I had an off brand window cleaner, but tried it and in a couple of minutes the carpet was like new. I didn't think it would work, but it did. Remember this just in case.

I knocked over a container of nail polishes onto my light blue bedroom carpet. Needless to say some of them broke; hot pinks, lime greens, etc. After I blotted up what I could with a napkin, I used a bottle of liquid hairspray, a brush, and after scrubbing a bit it came out in no time.

How do I remove dark blue nail polish that spilled all over my beige Berber carpet?
When my cat knocked down a glass tray from my dresser and broke a bottle of nail polish in the process, acetone took it all out without hurting the carpet. Of course, I don't know what condition the hardwood floor is in underneath, but hey, if I ever pulled up the carpet, the whole floor would have to be refinished anyway.
How do I remove dry blue fingernail polish from tan carpet?
By Maria from Salem, OR
My daughter spilled red nail polish on light blue carpet a couple years ago. We went to the store and bought acetone nail polish remover. I'd test an area before doing this.
We poured the acetone on the spot (it was a big spot) or you could put it onto an old, clean rag. DAB it, don't rub it in. You will have to use a lot of rags. It took about an hour to get the entire stain out, but after the carpet dried, you couldn't tell anything had been spilled on it.
How do you get nail polish out of carpet?
By Nancy from Bluffton, IN
I have not tackled a problem like this but perhaps maybe, the use of acetone would be the way.. But be sure to test on an out of sight, never to be seen place to check that the acetone will not melt the fabric.
