How to Remove Fingernail Hardener Stains From Furniture
Did your kids decide to have painting lessons with your fingernail hardener on your brand-new couch? Or were you trying to use fingernail hardener while you were watching your favorite show, and you spilled it on your recliner? No matter the reason for the mess, you can get rid of the stain quickly and easily.
What you will need:
- Nail polish remover (acetone based is best)
- Rubbing alcohol
- Cotton balls
- Take a cotton ball and put a decent amount of nail polish remover on it. Dab the affected area gently until some of the hardener starts to stick to the cotton ball. Continue until the cotton ball cannot pick up any more of the hardener.
- Take another cotton ball and dab the area to dry. Then take some of the rubbing alcohol and repeat the same process that you did with the nail polish remover.
- Take toothpaste and put it over the affected area. Allow it to sit for five to ten minutes, and then brush the area gently with a cotton ball. At this point, the stain should be eliminated. If not, allow the stain to sit for a couple of hours and then start the process again.
- Rinse the area thoroughly with warm water. This part is incredibly important; if you do not do this, you could end up having to deal with your furniture being a bit sticky.
