Nail Polish stain. Remove spilt nail varnish

If you have spilt nail varnish onto your carpet and catch it when it is still wet it can be removed by applying "Swarfega" (hand cleanser for Mechanics) and scrubbing with a nail brush until removed, once completed the effected area should be sponged with warm soapy water.

Swarfega does have a distinctive smell and may need shampooing to remove it or Fabreeze.

I spilled bright purple nail polish on my light gray carpet. I did not have the soap that you recommended but I grabbed the Lava soap from the garage. After scrubbing the soap in with a brush I then broke out the steam cleaner to suck up all the soap. The carpet looks good as new. Thanks.
