Nail Polish and the Wonder of Windex
Janet from San Diego
Last week, my 2 yr old son and his 2 yr old twin girlfriends found a bottle of deep red nail polish. They not only painted each other with it, but they dripped it all over my cream carpet, throughout the bedrooms, upstairs hallway and then down the stairs. It was everywhere! Once I had recovered from the shock of seeing the mess, I went online and researched how to clean it up. Rather than nail polish remover, it was suggested to use Windex®. So I decided to give it a try. After about 5 hours of spraying and scrubbing (and 5 bottles of Windex®), it had all come out. You cannot tell it even happened. I was amazed (and relieved!). Windex® saved the day. Most people only write in to complain, but I wanted to write in to say thank you. THANK YOU!!!!! Janet from San Diego
*From your friends at SC Johnson: Thanks so much for writing and sharing your story. We love to hear from our consumers! We’re thrilled the nail polish stains came out. Windex® products aren’t designed for this purpose, however, so we wouldn’t recommend this use and couldn’t guarantee any results. It’s always best to follow the label instructions on any product, and for stains on clothing or carpeting you may want to check out SC Johnson’s Shout® line of stain removers.
