  1. Spray deodorant on your skin

    Apply spray deodorant to skin stained with nail polish. Do not use a deodorant solid, as it will not have the same effect.

  2. Soak your skin in water

    Immerse skin that is stained with nail polish for two to three minutes. This will thoroughly remove the deodorant and nail polish.

  3. Apply hand sanitizer

    Rub sanitizer on your skin to get rid of any deodorant residue. Hand sanitizer will also remove remnants of nail polish.
