    Ok guys my girlfriends stupid bitch sister spilled her nail polish all over my back seat. I have a double cab 2011 tacoma. Is there any way for me to remove the stains? I haven't tried to do anything yet, it happened last night. I've searched different solutions but have no way of telling which actually works. Nail polish remover (acetone) is the most prevalent solution I have seen but I have also read that it can destroy the seats as well. My seats are not leather btw, not sure if they even make tacomas with leather interior but mine is cloth.

    thanks! hopefully you guys can help me out, I just bought the truck like 2 months ago :/

    So far I've added an Advance folding bed cover and since removed it. Gave it to my son in Maine, he has an 05 2wd. GT perfect fit seat covers. Weathertech floor mats and window vent visors. Waag center brush/grill guard. Hose clamp tailgate mod. Turned off the seat belt chime. Added Ultra-Gauge. Trailer hitch. Softopper. Replaced sun visors with slide out style. Toyota bed extender. Had Firestone Destinations and now Michelin LTX AT2 in stock size. More mods to come; Fog lights, locking storage in bed, intermittent wipers. Now looking for Radio/HU upgrade. and maybe a lift way down the road.
    When I first got mine the dealer had to clean grease off the seats from the moron mechanic. Smelled like an acetone type odor. Maybe call the dealer and just ask. You never know.

    Good luck.

    This probably wont work, but worth a shot. Try and freeze the nail polish then scrape.

    first with an ice cube on it

    if that doesnt work then I would try getting a compressed air can, (with ventilation) flip it upside down, spray the area for 15ish seconds, (should ice up) then scrape it.

    Just hate strong chemicals on fabric...

    good luck.

    i think nail polish remover or acetone would melt the seat materials. the icing method may work so try that first. might be time for her to buy you seat covers lol

    I used to be a professional carpet cleaner and we used mineral spirits to clean stains on carpet and also on furniture that we couldn't use water.

    If you use the mineral spirits, be sure to test it in an inconspicuous place first.

    yikes batman. Make the sister buy you car seats.

    Other than that, try different things but try it on similar materials first. Maybe the sisters car seats.

    Isopropyl Alcohol might work and might not be as harmful on the seats as Acetone.

    1. Go to dealership and get estimate for replacement of seat.
    2. Make copy of estimate
    3. Package the estimate nicely in a envelope
    4. Address it to girlfriends sister
    5. Wait for new seat.

    after you use any chemicals try to flush em out right away with water or a fabric cleaner of some sort so you get the job done but get the chemicals out quick.

    No your going to have a stain no matter what you try.

    But you can make your girl sit in the bed from now on and never have to worry about your seats getting messed up.

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    Another reason I love my reg cab. I'd find another seat. [​IMG] And guess who's paying for it? Little Bitch.
