Cool Tips to Remove Nail Polish From Carpet

Oracle carpet cleaning Brisbane

Alright. Ladies, tell me if you have been here before. You sit down on the couch and rest your nail polish on a nearby coffee or side table, get distracted, turn around, bump your nail polish with your hand or elbow and knock it onto your carpet spilling it in the process?

Donít worry. Youíre not alone. Sometimes it almost feels as though an open nail polish bottle is magnetically attracted to the carpet. Thereís no science to prove it, but it seems to often be the case.
If you have recently spilled nail polish on your carpet and are attempting to remove it yourself, here are a few ideas that might remove the carpet stain:
Hair Spray
Hair spay isnít often associated with cleaning, but in terms of removing nail polish from carpet or carpet tiles, itís been known to work.
First, spray the hair spray on a less visible portion of your carpet, perhaps behind a piece of furniture, under a rug or in a corner (or, even better, if you have carpet scraps remaining from when it was installed, use those). This is to test to make sure that the hair spray doesnít also produce a stain on your carpet.
Second, pour a generous amount of water on the nail polish on your carpet to get it soaking wet. Once the stain is completely wet, spray it 10-15 times with the same hair spray you just tested.
After that, you will want to blot and gently scrub the stain with a plain white cloth for maybe two to three minutes. Make sure the cloth is white so that no colors or dye seep into the stain.
Repeat the process until the nail polish carpet stain is gone.
Window Cleaner
Window cleaner for windows? Sure. For carpet? Youíd be surprised how well it works.
Same as the hair spray, you will want to test the window cleaner on a discrete portion of carpet prior to spraying it onto the nail polish stain. Then blot the stain with a wet, plain white cloth to absorb and remove excess amounts of nail polish.
Now apply the window cleaner to the nail polish on your carpet and gently blot and scrub in a circular motion in order to remove the stain.
Following this process, you will want to rinse the nail polish stain with more water and then blot and dry with a white cloth.
Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover
Nail polish remover to remove nail polish? OK. This probably makes sense, although you might not have thought to use it on your carpet.
Once again, test the non-acetone nail polish remover on a less-visible portion of your carpet or on a carpet scrap. If it doesnít stain or damage the carpet, proceed.
Now soak the stain in water and blot and gently scrub to remove excess amounts of the nail polish. Then apply the non-acetone nail polish remover to the carpet stain. The stain should start to dissolve and lift with very little pressure or scrubbing required on your part.
If none of these methods remove the nail polish from your carpet, donít get discouraged. Nail polish carpet stains are nasty and can be tough to remove, especially if not treated immediately.

Perhaps consider calling a professional carpet cleaner in Brisbane, such as Champion Oracle carpet cleaning?
