Will Nail Polish Remover Ruin A Wood Table?

Written by Tara

When polish remover eats away the finish but hasn’t discolored the wood, very fine sandpaper is your friend. 0000-grade fine stainless-steel wool, gently applied, will smooth off the melted finish and acetone residue to prevent further deterioration.

If the wooden surface is protected with a thin coating or if it’s a major spill, the wood can absorb the acetone. It will then discolour the surface, leaving a stubborn stain and roughening the grain, messing up the beautiful furniture. Wooden furniture needs special care in our home.

Generally How do you reverse acetone damage? Spray the damaged area with a light coat of aerosol lacquer from a can. When the lacquer dries, sand it lightly with steel wool and spray it again. If you can still see a slight depression, spray it two or three more times.
