It often happens that during a manicure, drops of varnish fall on clothes. The composition of the varnishes is such that it is most likely that it will not be possible to completely remove the stains from the nail polish with the help of washing. But there are effective methods to cope with this problem.
First, check the material of the garment for color fastness. To do this, drop a little nail polish remover (you can also use ordinary acetone) on the fabric in a place invisible to the eyes: at the seam, behind the lapel or on the fold. If the color of the fabric does not change under the influence of the product, you can try to remove stains without fear of ruining the clothes. It is not recommended to use nail polish remover when removing stains from acetate or fluorescent fabrics, as the acetone contained in it can damage the material or discolor the fabric.
Take a cotton swab or disk and generously moisten it with nail polish remover. Gently, using a cotton swab, wipe the area of the fabric stained with varnish. In this case, the manicure varnish will partially dissolve and wash off, remaining on a cotton swab.
If the clothes are of light colors, and the varnish was of a bright contrasting color, most likely, after treatment with acetone, minor marks and stains will remain on the fabric. You can also get rid of them. Dampen a cotton swab or sponge with a little gasoline and wipe the area thoroughly. After that, you can sprinkle the treatment area with baby talcum powder.
Remove traces of aluminum powder from nail polish with glycerin. To do this, apply some glycerin to the stained area of the fabric.
To completely get rid of the stains remaining on the fabric, soak the clothes for a couple of hours with a small amount of washing powder in water at a temperature acceptable for this material. Then wash your clothes in the washing machine.
To permanently remove nail polish stains from white fabrics, you can use bleach when washing. Before adding any bleach products, be sure to read the recommended washing parameters for the garment indicated on the label, so as not to disturb the composition or color of the material.
