Acetone is bad for synthetic fibers. It can "melt" them.

Rubbing alcohol works on all fabrics. Blot, blot, blot, blot, blot till it is gone. (Rubbing alcohol might remove the color from silk and cause a weird light spot. It's the only fabric I ever had a problem with. I just soaked the whole thing in alcohol and it equalized to a all over lighter color. )
