I went to the potty & came out & couldn't find Kaytlin (NEVER a good sign) finally found her sitting on my bed painting her nails! (She's not 3 yet - shouldn't be painting her nails, but she's a girly girl!) Ok, so my question is...How do I get the red wine nail polish off of my sheets? Will my zout work? Has anyone else ever had to figure this out? Any advice would be awesome! Thanks guys!

Jenn,

I have found that Oxi-Clean works very well on hard-to-get-out stains. I have also seen the Clorox version of it which would probably also work well. I have never actually tried it on nail polish though....But it would be worth a shot. :)

Hee hee! You sound like a commercial. I'm going to have to try this stuff! Everyone who uses it seems to swear by it.

If the sheets are white I'd try some diluted nail polish remover and then wash them with oxiclean or something similar. Other than that Jenn, I'm sorry to admit that I got another laugh at your expense. I figure, at this rate we will be each other's comic relief over the next few months.

If we didn't laugh we'd cry!

Hugs,

Although it's true that a lot of stains disappear with bleach and oxygen-derived cleaners I'm afraid that nail polish stains won't come out unless you use a petroleum - derived cleaner or fluid. Using non-acetone nail polish remover is less harsh than acetone itself. You can try also a product called Chemspec Rx for Ink. It can remove ink, nail polish, newspaper print, and permanent markers.

Good luck! I hope you did not wash and dried your sheets in a regular way!!! Doing so will permanently stain your sheets!
