How to get nail polish out of carpet!!?

Just got brand new carpet a couple of days ago and i have spilt dark green nail polish on light brown carpet, if my mum see's it she will go mental! how can i get rid? :)


You can usually remove spilled nail polish with scissors. Often nail polish on carpet is just on the very tips of the fibers. If this is the case you can just snip the polish off with sharp scissors. Just cut the very tips of the fibers. Work slowly. Don't cut a single millimeter more than you have to and pull up while cutting. This will help prevent divots in the carpet. Try your best to do just one or two fibers at a time...not a whole clump. And dissect the spills first by cutting them in half or thirds, so that you separate clumps. This will work unless you have already used nail polish remover (or other solvents) and have worked the nail polish into the carpet. Also...cutting off the nail polish works on shag or plush carpet, but not Berber or loopy carpet. Good luck. -
Do this carefull it worked for me -use Q-tips and non-acitone nail polish remover get as much off as possible -than use hairspray i saw someone already put it and i agree i also saw some that would'nt come off so i bought the same color nail polish is was called dark mocha rolf hope i helped as much as possible <3 luv ya
Use BOTH nail polish remover and carpet cleaner. But first use nail polish remover.
You better just fess up to your mom. Using the wrong product can damage the carpet even worse. A carpet installer can actually cur a small piece out and replace it with new.
Lots of paper towels and non-acetone nail-polish remover. Also, tell your mom when you clean it up. It's the right thing to do. I don't know about you, but my mom's done a lot for me. My father left us when I was very little and if it wasn't for her, I'd be in some seriously messed up crap right now. I'd recommend everyone to be closer to their parents.
