I'm not sure if this is where I'm supposed to post this but, does anyone know of a way to remove nail polish from a carpet. Before I take the carpet up, I would like to try and see if I can get it out. Thanks for any and all suggestions.

Call Montauk carpets and ask for Arnie. He can help. They also re-dye beach stains and other color matching....good luck!

I can switch this to SHOPPING & PRODUCTS if you want me to. I did want you to read Kid's suggestion first, though.

Go to any supermarket or drug store that rents the Rug Doctor steam carpet cleaning machine and buy a bottle of their spot remover (about $5.00).....you don't have to rent the whole machine as you can replicate the machine function part for just a few stains with hot water and rags or paper towels (and your home vac or shop vac if it is designed for wet pickup)......

A very large area of stain or damage and you might consider renting the machine.....

Goo Gone takes EVERYTHING out... spot test first though.

Did you try acetone?

newtoli,

I tried nail polish remover. It faded it but didn't take it out. I will try Goo Gone if the carpet cleaner doesn't work, thanks.

Newtoli,

Thank you soooo much for the Goo Gone advice. I worked on my carpet and I was able to get most of the nail polish out. I can't thank you enough, your advice was such a great help to me.

That's great to know and a good hint for everybody to be aware of (I wasn't, although I use GooGone for other things).
