How To Get Nail Polish Out Of Carpet 


Here’s a stain that’s going to bring most carpet cleaners to tears. Hopefully, by the time you’ve arrived to do the job of cleaning the nail polish off the carpet, the customer hasn’t already tried using nail polish remover. All that’s going to do is make it all runny and it’s going to run inside the fibers, and now you’ve got a dye stain to deal with. With a few simple little techniques and some simple chemistry, we’re going to show you how to get rid of nail polish out of a wool carpet.

Step One: 

Using a pipette, eye dropper, or a similar tool apply a small amount of nail polish remover to the affected area.

Step Two:

Agitate the area – this helps to turn the solidified nail polish into a more liquid form. Be careful not to over-agitate the carpet, but agitate it just enough to get the polish more liquid and easier to handle.

Step Three:

Apply a small amount of GOBSTR over the top of the nail polish stain. You can use either the liquid GOBSTR or the gel depending on your personal preference.

Step Four:

Agitate the carpet again to help loosen up any loose particles and help the chemicals penetrate the fibers.

Step Five:

Vacuum out the excess chemical from the carpet–don’t rinse the GOBSTR out.

Step Six: 

Repeat steps one through five until you’ve drawn out as much of the polish as possible using the nail polish remover and the GOBSTR.

Step Seven:

Apply our Prespray for Wool to the stain, making sure to cover the whole stain with the chemical.

Step Eight:

Agitate the carpet, again making sure not to over-agitate.

Step Nine:

Vacuum out the excess chemical.

Step Ten: 

If the stain is still visible on the carpet, repeat steps one through five with the GOBSTR and the nail polish remover until the stain has been completely removed from the carpet.
