  • Household Cleaning Tip – Nail Polish Remover

    May 3rd, 2009CTUncategorized

    On fine day when I came home from work. My son was shouting and running towards me.

    ”Dad, I screw up big time!” he says.

    “What happen ?” I asked.

    “Mom gonna kill me…” he answers.

    “Why, boy ?” I asked again.

    “I draw on the mirror, I try to wash it but it is still there” he explained.

    Oh, Kids. By now you should know my son is in trouble.

    So, he pulled me all the way to my wife dressing room. There I saw a work of art on the mirror my wife like it so much.

    Now kids, my son was playing with a permenant marker I gave him last week. So my little Picaso was drawing with that marker on my wife’s mirror.

    Kids, I know this situation happens a lot of time. No problemo! Doc gonna solve it.

    I quickly grab a bottle of acetone-based nail polish remover. What is this so call acetone-base nail polish remover u might ask. Well, it is an organic solvant that remove nail polish. Go ask mom or sis they should know.

    I soaked a cotton ball with acetone-based nail polish remover and place the cotton ball on the marker stain. With a cloth I created another Cool Science Experiments For Kids. The marker say bye bye and disappeared. To make sure my wife did not notice anything I even wipe the mirror with water. 😉

    My son happily shouted “Daddy saved the day!!!”

    Marker stain, paint smears, wood paint or even nail polsih (are paint) on glass surfaces are easily cleaned off using an acetone-based nail polish remover. However, ensure that there is adequate ventilation in the room if using large amounts of the solution as inhaling acetone can be hazardous. So kids, please becareful with the nail polish remover and don’t get it near the fire.

    Will be talking about organic solvant the coming post…stay tune.
