Can I use Nail Polish Remove to Remove a Sealer?


Can I use Nail Polish Remove to Remove a Sealer? - We have a unpolished porcelain floor with a gloss sealer on it, we want to remove the sealer. Found that finger nail polish remover works better that stripper, will the polish remover harm the tiles? Thank you.


ANSWER - There is no way to know if the polish remover will harm the tile or not because tile isn't normally tested for that. If it is an unglazed porcelain tile it probably won't harm it if it is cleaned properly afterwards, but you should test it out in an inconspicuous area to make sure you are satisfied with the results.

To be safe, and probably it would be less expensive, you should use a sealer stripper that is designed for removing sealers. If you go to our website at to Expert Answers to find Resources and click on Cleaners and Sealers, there is a list of manufacturers of sealers and cleaners with links to their website so you can see the sealer stripers that are available. Good Luck.
