Although acetone nail
polish remover can be very harsh to fabrics
, most will withstand a spot treatment. Some say that non-acetone nail polish remover can be less harsh than acetone when used to remove nail polish. However, fabrics made of acetate will be severely damaged with acetone
. If the nail polish spill occurs on an acetate fabric, it should be professionally laundered or cleaned in order to remove nail polish.
