HELP! Stain removal

Posted by: Sammi Apr 2 2006, 04:47 PM

Anna just got purple nail polish on her brand new, wore once, lime green cotton capres. Any ideas?

Only thing I can think of is....if you don't mind that they might be ruined (which, I would think, as they are now, they are ruined), is to use nail polish remover, blotting often. Then wash.

Nail polish remover.........or Goof-Off.

dh just ran to the market, to get more nail polish remover. I did a search, they suggest patting w/ water and laundry detergent. Doesn't work at all.

Ughh!

The daughter spilled hot pink nail polish on my cream colored carpet...Goof off took it right out.

What is Goof off? Where do you get it? Does it work on ground-into-the-carpet play-doh?


Posted by: chocolatechic Apr 2 2006, 05:12 PM

I get mine at Walmart, but Lowes has it too. It is in the hardware section....along with the paint removal stuff....

I don't know about playdough... dunno.gif

I don't know about the nail polish. I hope that you find something that works.

As for the play dough...I use ice to get it out of the carpet. But, I bet the goof off would work for that too. yes.gif

The polish remover didn't work at all.

It is sitting w/ detergent on top. I bet that won't work either!

Goof off for sure is the only thing I could think 'might' get it off.

I would have to second the Goof Off.

Thanks. We are planning a trip to Wal-mart next week. I'll get it and try.

Still there I need to get that stuff and try it!

Whatever you do.......don't put the pants in the dryer before the stain comes out.

Posted by: Sammi Apr 3 2006, 12:25 PM

You are right about that one.

I'll have to look for Goof Off next time at Lowes or WM ( would it be in the laundry or paint section of WM?).

Posted by: chocolatechic Apr 3 2006, 07:47 PM

It is in the paint thinner, remover part.
