Ladies, we have all had those moments when we smudge our manicure and get that bright red color on our clothes, bed linens or carpet. The headache to get rid of the stain can be unbearable. What beauty reporter Kirby Johnson does in this crisis makes her a godsend.
Kirby recommends hair spray before the use of nail polish remover. Why? Hairspray will not bleach your fabric, and it helps to reduce the annoyance by just picking the polish apart.
If you have had the unfortunate experience of staining a shirt with nail polish, first, spray the hairspray and allow it to dry. Then peel off the polish with a tweezer and wash the clothing. If for some reason the stain is still on the clothing, repeat the technique.
I always seem to get nail polish on my carpet. To remove, Kirby suggests spraying hairspray on the carpet and letting it dry; because you can’t wash your carpet, scrub away the stain with a brush.
Kirby offers another tip. You can use a non-acetone nail polish remover because it does not contain bleach. Remember to always test that type of nail polish remover because if it does get bleached,that wouldn’t be fun.
If you have had the unfortunate experience of getting nail polish in your hair, use coconut oil, vegetable oil or conditioner to massage it out.
To remove those funky colors from your leather items, saturate a piece of paper towel with rubbing alcohol to dry up the excess nail polish. Next, create a mixture of one part vinegar and two parts olive oil to remove the stain. Apply with a scrubber or brush and your worry is over.
