  • I dont know if you can... I would try some nail polish remover on a small area of the fabric (an area that isnt highly visible) because the polish remover could damage the fabric. Good Luck, and let us know what works...

  • 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.
