How do I get nail polish off fabric?

Nail Polish Stain Removal from Clothing

You should be able to remove the nail polish with either dry cleaner fluid or nail polish remover. I would recommend trying the product on a non-visible area first, to make sure that it does not cause the color to run in the fabric. Try to use the most mild nail polish remover possible.

Dry cleaning fluid works best as nail polish remover has oils in it which cause shimmer-stain

"The most mild nail polish remover possible" is called NON ACETONE. Fingernail polish remover that contains acetone will ruin clothing containing synthetic fibers.
