Welcome to the Oh No!s: tips and tricks for life’s little mishaps Leather:

  1. 1. Attempt to peel off the nail polish with your finger nail (if already dried)
  2. 2. Use a dull butter knife to scrape off as much of the liquid as you can (if still wet)
  3. 3. Still not coming off? Dip a q-tip in acetone (nail polish remover) to try to dab the spill very gently. Switch the q-tip often and do not oversaturate or rub the stain.

WARNING: not all leather can withstand acetone. First, find a small patch that is either hidden or inconspicuous and test if your leather furniture can handle acetone. Fabric:

  1. 1. Dab the nail polish off with a rag, do not move side-to-side
  2. 2. Use a clean towel to blot the area between dabs of acetone or nail polish remover (again- try a test section first, as mentioned above)
  3. 3. Repeat until stain is removed, careful not to saturate the area with too much nail polish remover
  4. 4. Rinse with warm water
