Paint on carpet cleaning trick

treasureforuOctober 28, 2008

We were painting our house and had planned to get new carpet but when we found out the price it was a definite no way are we doing that since we were selling it anyway. But, in the mean time we had not worried about paint getting on the carpet so we definetly needed to find a way to clean it up. My husband found something on the net that suggested using finger nail polish remover. We tried it and it worked really well. It helped with bigger spots and did really well with the little ones. I would make sure the color of the carpet is color fast before doing it but it is definetly worth a try.
