  Q: Are shoe polish stains impossible to remove?

  A: updated (05/04/2012)

Once the stain has dried and been absorbed by the material - such as clothes, carpets etc - then yes, it is very hard, and close to impossible to remove the stain. Your only hope of removing a shoe polish stain is to remove it before it has dried: on the whole this means diluting the stain with water, and using some form of cleaning solution. It's hard to give any specific advise without knowing what object the polish has stained. For example: removing a stain from a synthetic carpet or a wool carpet may require a different variety of cleaning solution. However, if the stain is fresh and you are unsure of what to do, then diluting the stain with water, and sponging it with a cleaning solution should help rather than hinder.
