What does acetone do to wood?

Acetone is commonly found in fingernail polish remover. Repair techniques for acetone damaged wood are typically for the finish only, but If acetone is spilled on bare wood, it will not cause any damage due to the rapid evaporation rate, but it may raise the grain slightly.

Considering this, how do you get fingernail polish off of the floor?

If the polish has hardened, try softening it by dabbing it with rubbing alcohol, using a cotton swab. If that doesn't work, try mineral spirits. If you still don't have any luck, use nail polish remover or acetone. Dab carefully to avoid getting solvent on the floor finish, and wipe as soon as the polish softens.

How do you get nail glue off a wood table?

Steps to Remove the Glue:
  1. Moisten a cotton swab with acetone.
  2. Apply the acetone or glue remover ONLY to the glue.
  3. Allow it to set on the glue for a minute.
  4. Blot the area with a soft cloth.
  5. Repeat until the glue is removed.
