Remove nail polish from carpet

Spilt your gorgeous nail polish all over the floor? Keep the anxiety at bay, we’ve got a couple of tricks up our sleeves that won’t cost you anything.
Your best bet on this is to act fast for better results. Dried nail polish is nobody’s best friend.If you’ve made a mess on a hard surface floor, like tiles, vinyl or floorboards, grab your sugar from the pantry and sprinkle over the entire spill.
Ensure it’s completely covered in sugar as it will absorb the nail polish.
Give it a few minutes for the magic to happen and then vacuum or sweep up the leftover sugar and bin it. Simple!

How to get nail polish out of carpet?

If it’s a lighter coloured carpet, use a non-acetone nail polish remover. Use the above method for hard surfaces and then gently dab the affected area with a soaked cloth of the non-acetone remover. Have a darker coloured carpet? Be wary of the products you use here as the dye may interact differently, so try hair spray or rubbing alcohol to then blot the polish off with a sponge or using paper towels.

Best tip of all?

Avoid wiping and spreading the polish as it will worsen! Try to absorb as much of the stain without wiping and you’ll have a smile on your face by the end of the cleanup.
