How To Clean Up Nail Polish


Accidents happen, and sometimes nail polish ends up on surfaces other than your nails. Whether you’ve spilled a bit on the floor, or your child has gotten creative and painted your walls, getting the nail polish off can be a challenge. If you want to clean up nail polish, there are some tips and techniques you can use to make the job easier.

Start by gathering the necessary items. You will need paper towels, nail polish remover, a cloth, and some dish soap. If you are cleaning the nail polish from a carpeted surface, you will also need a vacuum.

If the nail polish is still wet, you should try to soak up as much of it as you can with paper towels. Blot the paper towel on the surface, being careful not to rub the polish further into the material. If the nail polish has dried, you should try to scrape it off as much as possible, using a plastic scraper or a spoon.

Next, you should apply some nail polish remover to the area. Dip your cloth into the remover, then dab the nail polish until it has been removed. You can also use a cotton swab for more precise cleaning. Once the nail polish has been removed, rinse the area with water to get rid of any remaining remover.

For carpets, vacuum the area to get rid of any residue, then mix a few drops of dish soap into a cup of warm water. Dip a cloth into the mixture and dab it onto the carpet. Rinse the area with a damp cloth and allow it to dry.

If you’re still having trouble removing the nail polish, try using a stain remover. Spray it onto the area, then dab it with a cloth until the nail polish has been removed. Rinse the area with water, then let it dry completely.

Cleaning up nail polish can seem like a daunting task, but if you follow these steps, you should be able to remove it quickly and easily. Remember to use a gentle hand when cleaning, as harsh scrubbing can damage the surface.
