Hair color can be notoriously stubborn, but fear not! With the right techniques and a little bit of patience, you can effectively remove hair color stains from most surfaces. In this blog post, we'll guide you through steps you can take to get hair color off walls, sinks, and floors. Let’s go!
How to Remove Hair Dye from a Wall
Let’s start by explaining how to remove hair dye from the bathroom wall. When it comes to bathrooms, there are usually two types of surfaces to choose from: painted walls and tiles.
Painted walls are the most problematic since many common hair dye removers simply won’t work on them or will damage the paint. Thus, your only options are to try:
Rubbing alcohol into the stain using a cotton ball (and drying it with a towel afterward).
Using a Magic Eraser on a dry stain.
If neither of these work, then unfortunately, you need to repaint the wall.
How to remove hair dye from a tiled shower or bathroom wall? Here, you’ve got a wide array of options:
Bleach: most hair dyes contain a direct dye component that typically reacts with bleach. Remember to mix the bleach with water and be cautious while using it – you don’t want to bleach your clothes, right?
Baking soda paste: a mixture of baking soda and water (3:1 ratio) will also do the trick. All you need to do is prepare the paste and rub it onto the stain until it disappears.
Vinegar mixed with lemon juice: the acidic properties of this mix will easily break down most hair dye stains while not being as invasive as bleach, for instance.
