How to Remove Nail Polish Stains

If you’ve ever been painting your nails in anticipation for a night out on the town, you know the horror that can set in when your hand accidentally knocks over the bottle! A nail polish stain may feel like a nightmare (and some of those colors are so bright!), but we’ve got the tips you need to remove them quickly.

Step 1

Remove excess

Use a dull knife to gently scrape off any excess nail polish lingering on your item.

Step 2

Flush out stain

Place the affected area (wrong side up) under your faucet and flush it out with cold water. This will get out as much of the stain as possible before moving on to treat it.

Step 3

Fill sink

After flushing with water, fill the sink with warm water and drop in one Oxi Booster pod. Wait for it to dissolve fully.

Completely submerge the entire garment and allow it to soak for 1-3 hours. Rinse when done.

Extra Tip

If the nail polish stain is already dried and hardened by the time you get to it, rub glycerin into the stain and let it stand until it loosens, up to 1 hour. Then follow the rest of the steps!
