How to Remove Nail Polish from Hardwood & Laminate Floors

Home improvement 04.24.16
I get asked all the time how to get nail polish off of things so I decided to start testing some of my theories. I started by painting my salon-quality nail polish on the wood floor and then I tried using hydrogen peroxide, De-Solv-It and rubbing alcohol to get it off. I think you'll be surprised at which product got it off and how EASY it was!

    good advice Sharon, you could end up with a bigger problem if your not ready with that soap and water!

    I remember my Mom worked at the Avon plant in Suffern,NY for many years and they always used hairspray to get the lipstick

    well it really works my grandkids spilled bright hot pink glittered nail polish all over my wood floor and I used rubbing alcohol and took a soft scrub sponge to soak it and then the scrub side going with the grain of the wood and it is all off in 10
