How to remove your nail polish stains.

How to Remove Nail Polish from Just About Anything
If you love doing your nails, then you likely have dropped some nail polish in various locations.
To remove nail polish from carpet, it will depend on the color of your carpet.  A light carpet you should be able to use nail polish remover without any issues.  A darker carpet could possibly react with the remover so try hair spray or rubbing alcohol.  Let it soak in for about 20-30 seconds and then blot with wash cloth or paper towel. Blot carefully. Don't rub it. Keep going till the stain is gone. Be patient as it may take longer than you think.
You can also try Goo Be Gone, Windex & or Greased Lighting to remove the polish from your carpet.

To remove nail polish from wood, spray it down well with hair spray.  Let sit for about 20-30 seconds and then wipe it off.  You may have to repeat a few time.

To remove nail polish from clothing, you can try nail polish remover, but you should test out an non-visible area first as it can damage the color of the fabric.  If you do use nail polish remover be sure to wash the clothing right after so it doesn’t sit.  And of course if you are worried about damaging your clothes, you could simply drop it off at the dry cleaner and let them deal with the mess!

If you have pets, keep them away from the stained area for about an hour. It is toxic if the pet licks the stained area.

Recognize that a stain removal trick that works at first still might cause lasting damage to your carpet. For example, Simple Green has been reported to clean carpet stains initially, but then dye the carpet at a later date when the carpets are steam cleaned. I would do a small hard to see test mark on everything before going at it. Be cautious.
