I have never tried this but I heard it works---try using acetone free polish remover. If it works let me know.

Use baby oil and vinegar and let set for a few moments. After this use scrubbing side of kitchen sponge. It will come off with some light scrubbing and even will start to peel off with your nails. No residue remains and nothing to buy, just tried it and it worked!

Do not use nail polish remover!! Let the polish dry and lightly scrape it off with a razor blade (I use the ones that are used in utility knives) lightly scrape it off a little at time as to not scrape the finish!

I spilled nail polish remover on my mom's dining table (finished wood). What can I use other than the hot iron and towel? I can't go out and buy anything.

Oh no! Hopefully you were able to blot as much off the table in the smallest way possible without spreading it.

From there, definitely consult your mom on what DIY techniques you may want to try , or if its a valuable table a professional may have to come out to fix it.

Depends on the damage but hopefully this forum could help you:

Good luck!

Do not use acetone nail polish remover as it will pull off the finish. First carefully use a credit card or other plastic thing edge item to very carefully try to get up the bigger chunks. Then wipe with a damp cloth. If you still have residue try a dit of rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball and very lightly go over it. Do not press.

Hopefully that will do it. If it stained the wood you may need to have it professionally refaced.

Maybe you could soak one end of a Q-Tip with nail polish remover and remove the polish that way. Or maybe you could take a very small piece of sandpaper and remove it.

You could also buy a staining "crayon" and try to cover it up with that. Those are found in the hardware department of most stores. Good luck!

I just found an end table at a yard sale. It has white nail polish on it. How can I get it off? The table is a dark cherry color and it has a shiny finish. I'm afraid I will make it worse if I mess with it. It is a really nice table; what to do?

I have nail polish on my table that is finished with clear coat.

Nail Polish on a Wood Table

"Non-acetone" nail polish remover should be okay, but to be sure, try it in a small inconspicuous spot of the table like an edge or underneath. Somewhere that also has the clear coat first. Please let us know if it worked for our future reference. (03/09/2009)

Is there a way to repair a nail polish remover spill on a wood kitchen table?

Nail Polish on a Wood Table

Use lemon juice and baking soda. I tried this and it worked wonders! Use a double sided scrub sponge. Use the scrub side and rub in small circles. (02/21/2009)
