    my youngest son would have loved for me to know that when I had to remove red nail polish off of his whole body~nail polish remover got it off but it was rather harsh on his skin~he sure didn't do this again~

    It always softens my nail polish when I apply it to my hands. Makes sense that it would take it out of carpet, but I'll bet it does a number on the backing, especially if it is a rubber backed bathroom rug.

    I have to try this. I hope it takes out old stains. I had a bottle of red nail polish spill on a light beige carpet. I used Acetone but most of the stain is still there.

    I think the oil in the bug spray is what did it. Was the nail polish dry or still wet?
