How to Remove Nail Polish From Ceramic Tile

Christine Lehman

Many women apply nail polish while sitting on the bathroom floor. This is a great way to keep nail polish from accidentally ending up where it does not belong, and where it would be more difficult to clean (like a carpet).

However, getting nail polish on ceramic tile is sometimes unavoidable and it is necessary to clean it up.

  1. Use a facial tissue to wipe up any wet nail polish you have on the ceramic tile. Use small strokes, so that you don't further smear it.

  2. Wet a cotton ball with nail polish remover. Make sure there is enough nail polish remover on the cotton ball to remove the stain, but not so much so that it will drip everywhere.

  3. Wipe the stain on the ceramic tile with the moistened cotton ball. Continue to wipe it until no trace of the stain remains.

  4. Dispose of the cotton ball safely, away from children.

  5. Tip

    It is not necessary to wash the nail polish remover from your tile floor, as it will quickly evaporate.


    Keep nail polish remover away from children.
