Considering how difficult it can be to remove nail polish from sheets, spilling nail polish on sheets is a traumatic experience.

As soon as you see that streak of color, you need to take action before it sets and becomes impossible to remove.

Don’t throw away your sheets just because of one spot. There are a number of products and methods you can use to break down the polish before it sets.

Take off the bedsheet

The bedsheet should be removed from the bed. To avoid unintentionally having large patches of little polish, be careful not to transfer the polish onto other areas of the sheet. Spread it out as evenly as possible.

The bedsheet should be laid flat

Place the sheet on a flat surface. Clean up as much polish as possible with towels and paper.

A cotton ball soaked in acetone

To remove nail polish stains, wet a cotton ball with acetone or acetone-based nail polish remover. Rub the wet pad gently over the stain until it disappears. It may take several passes to get rid of the stain completely.

Keep blotting the stain

Using a cotton ball dipped into acetone-based nail polish remover, continue blotting. When one cotton ball starts to rot because it has absorbed too much remover, you should switch to a new one.

Wet a sponge in plain water

Use a spray bottle filled with water to dampen sheets that have nail polish on them. Rub generously with an old toothbrush or metal scouring pad until the nail polish is removed from the sheets.

Blot up excess moisture from the sheets, along with any remaining traces of polish, using paper towels. Launder as usual, inspecting before placing in a hot dryer to remove all moisture completely since this method doesn’t require heat.

You can use hydrogen peroxide

Pour the mixture onto the stained area of the bedsheets. Lay the sheets in the sun for about two hours to dry. Apply more peroxide as it begins to dry onto the sheets.

Launder the bedsheets as usual once they have sat in the sun for a couple of hours. Inspect them before drying for any trace of the nail polish if at all possible.
