Nail Polish Stains & Spills
Sure, you should have put down a towel or some newspaper before starting your manicure or pedicure, and you know you should have put down some protection even if you were just doing a quick touch up or topcoat, but hey, we all get busy, or we’re in a rush or, well, we convince ourselves that we’ll be super-careful and nothing will happen, but accidents do happen.
If you’ve spilled your new hot pink or bright blue nail polish on your cream colored sofa, dripped a drop on your table, gotten a glob on a garment, or a streak on a suit because your nails weren’t quite dry, or you dropped a bottle on a rug or carpet, you know the difficulty of removing the polish and the underlying stain from most materials and surfaces.
Goof Off® Heavy Duty Spot Remover and Degreaser can help!
Removing Nail Polish From Soft Surfaces
Logically, it seems that removing nail polish would be best accomplished by using nail polish remover. STOP RIGHT THERE! Please, don’t do it….
Acetone nail polish remover will damage your clothing, upholstery, linens, carpets and rugs, it will probably take the paint off a painted surface and could hurt the varnish on wood. It will also smear, making a bigger spot and a bigger mess.
What should you do instead? The fastest, most efficient and most effective way to remove nail polish, is to first – while it’s still wet – blot up any excess, being careful not to wipe, smear or smudge. Use a clean cloth or sponge and be sure to switch to a clean area with each blot.
Next, choose a spot remover that will not damage material. Goof Off® Heavy Duty Spot Remover and Degreaser, with its convenient spray applicator, lets you apply its biodegradable formula right to the stain. The powerful micro-emulsion formula penetrates and dissolves the nail polish and removes the stain without harming the underlying material, when used as directed. It also works on other cosmetic mishaps, such as removing makeup stains, including lipstick. It’s always advisable to test first for colorfastness first by choosing an inconspicuous portion of a rug, the back of a sofa, or an inside hidden portion of any clothing. We also recommend laundering items afterward, according to manufacturers’ recommendations.
Nail Polish Stain on Hard Surfaces
If you’re dealing with a nail polish problem on hard surfaces such as wooden furniture or bathroom countertops, Goof Off® works equally well. It won’t damage wood, vinyl, stone, countertops, tile, ceramic or porcelain when used as directed – and it leaves no oily residue like some other stain removers do. It also has no harsh fumes and is economical to use, and works on pretty much any household stain you can think of.
And next time . . . put down an old towel or some newspaper before opening your nail polish!
