How can I remove nail polish stains from clothes? It is a question that we have all asked ourselves at some time and it is that, no matter how careful you are, from time to time the nail polish escapes from our hands and ends up staining that blouse that we like so much. Not to mention the times when you think the nail polish has dried and it hasn’t… What a mess! Once again that garment you love so much has been stained! Don’t worry, we have the solution. Here are the best home remedies to remove those hateful nail polish stains from clothes (and in just 10 minutes!!) Grab a pen and paper and let’s get started.
Tricks to remove nail polish stains from your clothes
To fix that mess that has been left on your clothes because of your nail polish, we have these effective tricks. Choose one or the other depending on how the specific garment is . Remember to do a small test first in an inconspicuous area to make sure the fabric is not damaged. You already know that there are some garments more delicate than others!
A little dry solvent to remove enamel stains from your clothes
If the garment that has been stained is made of wool or silk, try the following trick: remove the excess nail polish by scraping a little with any object you have at home. Then put a little dry solvent and cover the garment to be treated with absorbent kitchen paper. Wait a few minutes for it to act, remove the traces of solvent with another clean kitchen paper, rinse with plenty of water and finish washing in the washing machine with the appropriate program. If you see that the stain has not come out completely, repeat the process and this time let the solvent act a little longer.
Acetone to save clothes that have been stained with nail polish
This homemade method also works like a charm. Scrape the surface of the garment a little as we explained in the previous example. Next, spread a little acetone directly on the stain to be treated. Let it take effect for at least 10 minutes. Rinse with water and see if the enamel has come out completely. If it isn’t and you still notice that it’s very sticky, add a little more acetone. Now you only have to rinse with water and wash with the rest of the laundry as you normally do.
Insect spray, it works!
Did you know that bug spray is also very effective at removing stubborn nail polish stains from clothing? You just have to try to find out for yourself. Remove a little excess nail polish from clothing and apply the product directly on the stain you are going to erase. Letting it act for about 3 minutes will be more than enough. The next step is to rub with an old brush that you have at home (we say old because then you will have to throw it away). Rinse the garment with warm water and finish washing in the washing machine. Not a trace of the nail polish stain on your clothes!
Talcum powder, another great remedy to remove nail polish stains
This trick will take you a little over 10 minutes, but it is very easy to do and very effective! Sprinkle a little talcum powder on the nail polish stain to be treated and leave it to act for a few hours. To make it even easier for you, let it act overnight and, when you get up the next morning, remove the remains with kitchen paper and wash in the washing machine. Your clothes will be perfect!
