Nail polish can really enhance a woman’s fingers and toes. It can be a great accent to a beautiful dress or simply something that you can have fun with and customize according to your mood. But while it can have a very good impact on your appearance, it can also be a cause for concern if you accidentally spill some of that nail polish on your carpet.

Nail polish spills are very hard to clean up. They can really alter the carpet’s appearance which is why knowing how to properly clean it up is vital. If you are dealing with this problem at home then you are in luck. Below is an effective guide which I have used in cleaning up the nail polish stains on the carpet. Just follow it so that you won’t have to worry about getting your carpet clean and back to normal anymore.

1. Try to remove as much of the nail polish spilled on the carpet by scooping it using a spoon or a dull knife. If you are just dealing with minor spills though you can simple get a clean paper towel and blot the affected area. It is important that you do not rub the spill as you can only make it worse.
2. Once you have removed the excess nail polish, it’s now time for you to add a few drops of nail polish remover onto the stain that is left behind on the carpet. Before you do this you must make sure that the nail polish remover is safe to use on your carpet. To do this, simply add a drop or two on an inconspicuous part of the carpet to see if it does any damage. If there is any discoloration or damage then try using a different carpet cleaning solution, if it does nothing then you are safe to use it.
3. After applying a few drops of the nail polish remover, blot the area again using a paper towel. By doing this you will be able to remove a little of the stain but you will need to proceed to the next step to completely get it out.
4. Next, mix a teaspoon of non-bleach laundry detergent with ¾ liters of water. Apply this onto the stained area and then blot it repeatedly using a clean white cloth. After a while you will see that the stain is transferring from the carpet and onto the cloth. Do this until the nail polish stain is completely removed.
5. Rinse the area with clean water and dry it up using clean rags. This is so that no residue will get left behind on the carpet.
