Simple Steps to Get Rid of Nail Polish Stains on the Carpet

Women love it when their nails are nice and beautiful. There is even a trend now of having nails polished not only in various colors but also in beautiful designs and patterns. It is really becoming more common for women nowadays to spend a lot of time and effort in making their nails look more beautiful.

With this rising trend, nail polish has become a really big accessory for women of all ages. Many love to do their own nail polishing at home to help get their nails to look nice and clean. Sadly, there can be unfortunate instances where you accidentally spill the nail polish you are using on the carpet.

This is really not something that you want to happen as nail polish stains can be really stubborn to remove. To help get rid of this kind of problem on your carpet, try out the steps below so that you can solve this issue in a jiffy.

• The first thing that you need to do is to remove as much of the spilled nail polish on the carpet as you can. Get a clean white cloth or a paper towel and then slowly blot and extract the spilled liquid. Continue doing this until you are able to remove as much of the nail polish on the carpet as you can.
• The next step is to apply some nail polish remover onto the stain that is caused on your carpet. Before using it though it is important to try and test it on a small portion of the carpet so that you can be sure that it does not cause any damage or harm. Once it is safe to use, apply a few drops of it onto the stain and then blot the affected area until it dries up.
• Prepare a cleaning solution which is made out of non-bleach laundry detergent and some water to help remove the remaining portions of the nail polish stain. Use one part of the former and add it to four parts of the latter and place the resulting solution inside an empty spray bottle. Then, spray the affected area of the carpet a couple of times with the cleaning solution you have prepared.
• After applying the detergent-based cleaning solution, use a clean white cloth to again blot the affected area. This time, more and more of the stain will start transferring from the carpet fibers and onto the cloth. Go on doing this until the entire nail polish stain is gone.
• Lastly, rinse the carpet area affected by the spill with a cup of clean water. Then, dry everything completely with a wet/dry vac. This last step is to help prevent any residue from getting left behind on the carpet fibers and causing build-up over time.
