    Second, we will need a nail polish spill to clean up. For our example, we are just going to make a small spill on the floor.

    Then we are going to take our sugar and pour it all over the spilt nail polish. Make sure that the sugar is fully covering all of the spilt polish.

    Then we are going to let it sit for a couple minutes, this gives the sugar time to fully absorb the nail polish.

    We can now take either paper towel or a broom and fully wipe the spill off of the floor. If there is still left over polish, keeping the sugar on the spill for a little longer will take off any little excess stains.

    So as we can see, the nail polish is totally off the floor and all we have to do is sweep up the remaining sugar.

Soaking your hands and use an abrasive scrub like baking soda should eventually get the nail polish off your hands. For the resistant sections that stay or appear stained, soak the area with vinegar and lemon juice for 10 minutes then try again to remove the nail polish.
