To remove nail polish from a couch like a professional follow these easy steps:
1. Scrape off dried nail polish with the edge of a butter knife or blunt object.
2. Blot wet nail polish with a clean towel. Resist the temptation to rub the stain, as this will spread the nail polish.
3. Test a small amount of acetone nail polish remover on an inconspicuous area of your couch for colourfastness. It’s important to note that acetone is unsafe for upholstery containing acetate, as well as upholstery that cannot be cleaned by solvents.
4. Apply a few drops of nail polish remover onto the stain.
5. Blot the stain with a clean cloth. The nail polish should transfer itself to the cloth. Continue to apply the acetone nail polish remover and blot until you have removed the stain.
6. Follow up the acetone treatment by sponging the area with a dry cleaning solvent. Blot with a clean towel to remove excess solvent. Alternatively, try blotting with a solution of one tsp. neutral, mild detergent mixed with one cup of lukewarm water. Sponge the area with water and blot to remove excess moisture.
7. Allow the area to dry completely.
Just few drops of nail polish remover, not too many.
