    My missus has dropped a blob of red nail polish on her white jeans :Doh:! Is there anything that will remove nail polish?
    And before you comment Mo, it's NOT my nail polish!:Tongue1:

    Cut it out, then fray, all the rage with some:Smile:


    If you use ACETONE nail polish remover the stain will only spread, we found that out the hard way:Sad:

    Hmmm, anything you use on them is likely to cause the polish to spread making more of a mess, unfortunately I doubt it you can remove it without leaving a trace of some sort.

    I've had a google and came up with an unusual one though, using Avon 'bug' spray apparently could help!

    http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_do_you_remove_nail_polish_from_denim?#slide=6

    Or even hairspray!

    Same thing happened to my wife's mother. Told her my blowlamp would do the job. Got through three gas cartridges, but she still wouldn't burn.
    Best chance I ever had........:Wink:

    As many made made fibres disintegrate when acetate is used on them, how about putting a couple of sparkly bead things on the blob ( held in place with a further we dab of the same varnish )

    Simple, no risk of damage and at the moment quite fashionable

    Depends where the blob is, of course. . . been in similar situations with jeans and sweaters. Buy small embroidered symbolly thing ... eg. a smiley.... and iron/sew it over the blob.

    Failing that buy a big bottle of red nail varnish and make other blobs around it into a pattern.... The trend for this coming spring is slashed jeans at the knees so if on the knees problem solved.

    A new pair? I don't think so! I have only just bought these for her, well, when i say only just, i mean about seventeen years ago.
    I mentioned cutting the legs off above the 'blob', but as it's near the groin, there willn't be much left. :Blush:
