I am trying to get fingernail polish out of a beautiful crocheted afghan that my Mother made and I am leary to try just anything, Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
I would try nail polish remover. Try it on a Q-tip and dab some on the polish. If it seems to be removing it, continue. It does evaporate and shouldn't hurt most yarns or their dyes. Because it is something you love, start slow and make sure it is working and not taking out dye or harming the fabric. Let the area dry thoroughly and if it seems to be working with no harm, then you could try putting some on a cloth. Be careful not to work the polish in further. Good luck. (03/10/2004)
