Nail polish is a cosmetic lacquer that comes in a variety of colours, but it’s more than just a dye stain. Since it’s made up of various chemicals, nail varnish hardens into the fibres of the fabric when it dries, making it difficult to remove when you spill it on your clothes. If you think you need to throw out that much-loved shirt or get heavy duty solvents to dissolve the nail polish embedded in your garment, we’re here to help. Follow Ariel’s tips on how to remove nail varnish stains safely by watching our step by step guide on how to remove nail polish from fabric, or read our instructions about removing nail polish stains from clothes or carpets below.
Remove nail polish stains
Let the nail varnish dry before scraping off any excess from the garment.
Use an acetone-based remover
Soak a microfibre cloth in an acetone-based nail polish remover. First, check that the solution does not discolour the fabric by testing on the seam, or a less visible part of the garment. Dab the nail varnish stains with the cloth until the nail polish stain colour has faded. Do not scrub or wipe.
Place one Ariel 3in1 PODS into the bottom of your washing machine drum. Use two capsules if you have a large load.
Place the garment into the washing machine with similar items.
Wash on the usual cycle on the hottest wash temperature indicated by the fabric care label.
When the cycle is complete, unload the garments immediately.
