How am I going to do this?? My daughter dropped a bottle of RED...

FINGERNAIL polish in her bathroom and it shattered! I have tried to get it cleaned up. It is on the tile in the grout and on her cabinets which are a very light polished wood! I am freaked out and I have no idea how to get this clean. It looks like blood! Help me, I am willing to try just about anything!

  • if it has not dried completely try to get as much of it up with a damp rag as you can. then start the evil work. you can get it off with nailpolish remover, but the cabinets will likely have to be refinished. get a good wood polish and see if you can buff it out once you get the red taken off!

    toothbrush + acetone nailpolish remover will get it out of the grout. irrigate with water & soak it up so it does'nt sink into the grout... just some elbow grease & determination should work. hate it for you- when that happened to me, it was neon pink- looked like we murdered a bottle of pepto.

  • I droped bright orange on the tile and was able to get it up with polish remover. Not sure if you can use that on wood tho.

  • A friend of mine got me hooked on this new eco-friendly stain remover called Winning Colours Stain Remover and it works on every stain I have had so far. I went to their website to find a store near me and used their store locator. Here is the link: http://winningbrandscorporation.com/store_locator.htm You might enjoy seeing these videos too to see what it can do (in the first two videos nail polish is being removed from carpet and hardwood floor): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YP1Uz0OGf6Q , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6KSxrl6vAE , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3dQBCP4e24 and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXmQIyYxtmw
