Nail Polish Removal from Carpet


Nail Polish

Nail polish is generally acrylic and comes in a variety of colors. It can be tricky to remove, so don’t make any guarantees to your customer. It’s always better to under-promise and over-deliver.



  1. Apply Matrix Orange Power Gel undiluted. Tamp and blot with a spotting brush and spotting towel. Note: Do not over-apply or aggressively scrub Orange Power Gel into the carpet as it can cause delamination if allowed to penetrate through the carpet backing. 
  2. Apply Matrix Breakdown POG undiluted. Note: Do not allow Breakdown to penetrate through the backing; this can cause potential delamination. Be sure to allow for at least 10-15 minutes of dwell time. Tamp and blot with spotting brush and spotting towel.
  3. Apply Matrix Release. Tamp and blot with a spotting brush and spotting towel.
  4. Apply Matrix Target Tannin Stain Remover. Tamp and blot with a spotting brush and spotting towel.
  5. Rinse area completely with water. Blot with spotting towel until dry.
  6. If some color remains, apply Matrix Advanced Stain Remover mixed equal parts solutions A & B. Cover with plastic and allow to dwell for several hours.


Warning: Always test materials for colorfastness, follow label directions, and never mix products unless specified in the label directions. Each situation reacts differently and results may vary.
