Check Out the Crazy-Cool Things You Can Do with Nail Polish Remover

Nail polish remover is truly a lifesaver, but this video proves there's more than one way to use your acetone.

Nail polish remover hacks are the equivalent of a divine intervention for any one who loves a good manicure. Acetone has saved our nails for years, but did you know you can use it in other ways? From household messes to leather upkeep, nail polish remover is about to become your new bleach, thanks to this super-helpful video from YouTube channel cutepolish.

The Hacks

1. Remove Permanent Marker
Looks like marker stains aren't so permanent (thank God). Just dab your acetone onto a cotton ball and wipe away, It will even work on your skin (in moderation, of course).

2. Remove Ink Stains from Leather
You can use this handy hack on even the most sensitive leather products. Use a cotton ball or a cotton swab dipped in acetone to remove the stain, but try not to be too forceful on the leather surface.

3. Sanitize Metal Tools
We're all guilty of neglecting to clean our beauty tools from to time, but thanks to this acetone hack, you'll have the cleanest tweezers around. Just soak a cotton ball in the nail polish remover of your choice and clean your tools as needed.

4. Remove Super Glue
If you ever accidentally get this sticky substance on your skin, don't freak out. Acetone can get rid of that glue super quick. Apply nail polish remover to a cotton ball, and allow it to sit on your skin for about a minute to dissolve the glue. Then gently remove.

5. Remove Sticker Adhesive
Nothing is more frustrating that peeling off a tricky sticker only to have it leave behind a trail of yucky residue. Luckily, there's a nail polish remover hack for that. Grab a toothpick and your favorite acetone to remove the residue and peel off any extra pieces.

Who knew nail polish remover could be so practical? BRB, we're buying the biggest bottle on the shelf.
