Let’s be honest, women love to pamper themselves whether that be with their friends or on a Friday night after a long week at work. It can often become a bit of a disaster if the nail polish ends up everywhere other then your nails! 

Don’t panic these simple and easy 7 steps will talk you through how to remove nail polish from your carpets if this ever happens to you.

Step 1

Start by blotting the nail polish with an old tea towel to remove all of the wet nail polish residue. Be gentle and DO NOT rub in a circular motion or you risk spreading the stain and making it much worse then what it already is.

Step 2

Use a blunt metal implement such as the end of a spoon to scrape up all of the dried polish from the surface of the carpet. You MUST be gentle when doing this as you risk damaging the carpet and pushing the stain deeper into the fibres if you are not cautious. 

Step 3

Dip the end of a white tea towel in acetone nail polish remover, then blot the stain again to remove as much polish as possible.

Step 4

Press a clean tea towel onto the area of the stain to again soak up the remaining residue.

Step 5

Fill a spray bottle with water, adding one tablespoon of bleach-free detergent.

Step 6

Wash out your spray bottle and refill with water. Spray the stained portion of your carpet, dampening the whole area.

Step 7

Finally, soak up the excess water by pressing a clean dry tea towel over the wet area. Avoid paper towels, which can create a mulch-like mess.
