Here is what worked for me after I spilled nail polish remover all over my beatiful wooden table: First, I mix amonia with hot water and washed the table with it, sqeezing extra water over the stains. Then, I used a stell wool pad to scrub the stains, which seemed to help clear them up. After everything had been srubbed well, I cleaned the table again with the amonia and water. Once it was dry, and dribbled baby oil over the places where the stains were and let it sit there for an hour before wiping it up. The table looks great, and I thought it had been ruined. I hope this helps someone else in that situation. An easy quick soulution is put mayo over the stain. Let it sit there for about 2 hours. It really helps make it less noticable even though it doesn't completely remove the stain.

How do you remove nail polish from wooden table?

Um... nail polish remover? Just a guess. I mean, I've seen nail polish remover sold in stores, and I've always wondered what it was used for. But, when I saw this question, it just jumped out at me that, MAYBE, nail polish remover could be used to REMOVE NAIL POLISH. But again, that's just a guess.I'm sorry but this answer isn't right. First off nail polish REMOVER is used to REMOVE nail polish via nails. If you use it to remove nail polish from a table then you have the possiblility of removing the varnish (the product used to stain a wooden table) Then you have to re-stain the area and then you are getting into a process that's hard to do.I'm NOT sorry, but the first answer most certainly IS correct, and the second answer isn't an answer at all. The questioner didn't ask how to remove nail polish from a wooden table without removing the varnish too. He/she simply asked how to remove nail polish from a wooden table. And nail polish remover, if its name is any indication at all of its purpose, will do the trick. The questioner didn't even say that the table HAD varnish, so possibly it's not even an issue, but for the purposes of this question, it's not an issue anyway, since the questioner didn't mention anything about varnish.Moreover, there's not really anything all that hard about re-staining the area. 1 - buy stain to match the color, 2 - buy paint brush, 3 - apply. Also, if a table is stained, it also likely has two or more coats of polyurethane on top of the stain, and though nail polish remover might remove some of the polyurethane, if you are careful with the nail polish remover, you're not going to go completely through the polyurethane to the stain beneath it. Then it's just a matter of applying more polyurethane (if needed) over the spot, sanding it, and applying another coat. You don't even have to worry about matching colors, since polyurethane is clear.In any event, since the second contributor didn't actually offer an answer, the first answer (though admittedly quite sarcastic) is still the best answer so far. If someone knows of a product that will remove nail polish without affecting the stain or the polyurethane, then that will be a better answer. But until then, the first answer, obvious as it is, is the best answer.Also, the second answer says that "varnish" is "the product used to stain a wooden table". That is not technically true. Varnish is the clear coat that is applied after the stain to seal the piece and protect it from moisture (and nail polish too, for that matter). The polyurethane mentioned in the second paragraph of this answer is a type of varnish.

How do you get nail polish remover stains off your table?

Take your nail polish remover and take a cotton swab and a rag and what you do is you put a little bit on your cotton swab and scrub with a little bit of pressure and every like half a minute grab the rag and wipe of the remover from your table because if you don't there is a real good chance you WILL stain you table with a white stain unless you have a white table then you could always just scrub it off without any stain until its gone.

How do you remove nail polish from a black table?

If the black table is made of a black wood like ebony then finger nail polish remover should work fine. If the black table is painted, it is a little trickier. Hardware stores sell blades for paint scrapers. They are called single blades. They have a blade on one side and a small piece of metal on the other for the paint scraper. You can lay one almost flat with the blade just touching the top of the table and slowly scrape off the nail polish. If you get the angle too high, you will gouge the table. Start off slowly.
