Can I use acetone to remove false nails ?
Acetone can be used to remove acrylic fingernails. Soak some cotton balls in the acetone then place cotton on finger and cover with some foil. Wait at least 10 minutes and the nails should come off.
Can Acetone be used to clean a polished surface ?
Acetone will attack most types of laquer and polish, we would not recommend using it on such surfaces.
I have heard about a test using acetone to see if a plastic is glueable ?
This is a quick test that gives a result for most plastics. Rub a small area of the plastic with acetone, if it becomes sticky or tacky then generally the plastic is glueable with an appropriate solvent adhesive. If the acetone simply dries off then the plastic needs to be fixed using plastic welding.
Is Acetone safe to use on my skin ?
Acetone is considered safe to use on your skin but prolonged exposure to both the liquid and fumes is not recommended. Should any irriation occur rinse skin with water.
I want to use actone on a certain surface, will acetone effect the surface finish?
