You might think nail polish remover is solely for getting rid of old manicures, but it’s actually an amazing product with all kinds of uses. But what makes it so special? Mainly that it’s strong, which you probably know just from smelling it.

How Stuff Works explains that acetone has properties that help it break down tough, stain-causing materials like nail polish, which dissolve and almost melt away.

For that reason, nail polish remover can be used for a whole host of other chores. Need to remove a temporary tattoo or ink stamp? The answer is nail polish remover. Have you ever needed to sanitize something quickly — like a razor or a precision knife? Just soak them in a little nail polish remover, and you’re good to go!

Nail polish remover can also be used to clean things like keyboards and even remove stains from clothing, or those made by permanent marker.

Instead of polishing your silverware the old fashioned way, you can just use a little nail polish remover to deep clean your utensils.

Perhaps the most surprising use for nail polish remover is to help revive an old bottle of nail polish itself. No need to go out for another bottle!

Take a look at the video below to see all of the other surprising and effective ways you can put your nail polish remover to work.
