  • You throw the whole shirt away & get him a new one! Sorry mamma, finger nail polish doesn't come out of stuff!

  • It's not going to come out :( I've used nail polish remover (with acetone) to get it out of whites, but it will probably ruin a blue shirt.

  • When my son stains a shirt we break out the fabric paint. and paint over the stain. He still gets to keep his shirt I save $$$ and we get to do a fun art project together. Sometimes we get out his toy trucks "drive" them thru the paint then 'drive' them over the shirt. or we squeeze paint on the shirt fold it in 1/2, then open it up and ta da !! a cool design.......
    I think the nail polish is there to stay.......
