HOW TO REMOVE SHOE POLISH OUT OF CARPET Upon discovering the shoe polish stain, scrape away as much as you can using a dull edge, taking care not to spread the stain. With a sponge, apply dry cleaning fluid to the shoe polish stain, blotting it until all of the liquid has disappeared. Next, mix 2 cups of warm water with one teaspoon of liquid dish soap and one tablespoon of ammonia. Apply this solution directly onto the shoe polish stain with a paper towel. Be sure to use continually use a clean side of the cloth. Continue to blot the shoe polish stain, slowly absorbing the liquid. Pour cold water directly onto the stain and continue blotting until dry. Another method is to take a white cloth and pour a generous amount of non-acetone nail polish remover directly onto it. Gently rub the affected area of the carpet with this rag.

Mix two cups of cold water with one tablespoon of laundry detergent. Be sure to use a detergent that is a non-bleach formula. Apply this detergent directly onto the stain using a white cloth and scrub the stain. Wearing protective gloves, take 1 cup of water and mix it with one tablespoon of general household ammonia. Dip a clean white cloth in this solution and continue scrubbing the carpet. Rinse the shoe polish stain with a generous amount of warm tap water and then blot dry or vacuum away any moisture.
