This will help to remove small nail polish spills on carpet and other synthetic fibers
- Pour about 3 tablespoons of water on the spot. Be sure you saturate the entire spill
- Add about 15 - 20 heavy squirts of hairspray over the water
- Cover that with 3 - 5 splashes of rubbing alcohol - don't have alcohol? Use vodka if you have it
- Gently agitate and blot continuously
- An old toothbrush can be helpful
- If you are not removing more color, cover the spot with a heavy pad of paper towels and stand on it to absorb the water, hair spray and alcohol
- Repeat if needed.
Warnings & Cautions:
DO NOT use this on a large nail polish spill. It's time to call a professionalTreat ASAP. The spill needs to be fresh and still wet
Do not use acetone-based nail polish remover or pure acetone on this. Acetone will melt the plastic that is in many synthetic fibers
Why it Works:
The water acts as a carrying agent for the hairspray and alcohol to breakdown and remove the polish
If this does not remove all of the spill and you have non-acetone nail polish remover you can use that by dripping it on and blotting continuously. Do not pour the polish remover on. Drip it from a spoon and blot and pull up on the fibers with a paper towel every time you add more polish remover.
