Nail polish might give the extra color you want, but it’s a nightmare to remove if it gets on your clothes. There’s no need for harsh chemicals with these tips from Tide on how to get rid of nail polish stains safely.
Remove Excess:Scrape off any excess from the garment before rinsing under cold, running water. The higher the water pressure, the easier it will be to remove.
Pre-treat:Using a bucket, a sink or a bowl, create a soaking solution by adding 1 ounce or 1 ½ tablespoons of Tide Coldwater Clean Liquid. Allow the garment to soak for up to 30 minutes, weighting the item with a white towel to keep it totally submerged.
Dose:You can use the cap to ensure you use the right amount of detergent. Just fill it with the correct dose of detergent, and pour it into the detergent dispenser if you have an HE machine, or directly into the drum before loading the clothes if you have a non-HE machine.
Load:Without rinsing off the detergent, place the garment into the washer with other items. Leaving the detergent on the stain will give your wash that extra boost of cleaning power.
Wash:Wash on the usual cycle, on the hottest wash temperature indicated. Always check the instructions on the garment’s care label.
Unload:When the cycle is complete, unload the garments immediately.
If the stain persists after washing, repeat the previous steps before tossing in the dryer, as drying will set the stain.
