How to remove Hair Dye stains from sink

Hair dye is an important part of life for many people who follow the hair dying trend. People who get white hair before the appropriate age also dye their hair frequently. Many salons have customers wanting to get their hair dyed, which is why it is very regular for salons to have hair dye stains from their sinks.

 After the dying is completely washed out the customers need attention as they want their hair to be dried and therefore the salon workers don’t exactly have the time to clean up. People who color their hair at home also face problems with hair dye stains in their sink because of neglect. This leads the stains to set in on the surface of the sink and look very unappealing especially if the sink is white or of a lighter color.

It is important, therefore, to clean the sink right after the hair dye has been washed. A dye of darker color like black, dark brown or deep red can leave very dark stains which are harder to clean even when they have freshly appeared on the sink. But in case there was a lack of time to clean up immediately, and the stain set in sink, there are a number of solutions to get rid of these nasty and stubborn dye stains. You can also get rid of these stains on walls, countertops and floors. Procedure for them also remains the same.

Method 1 (Using Hydrogen Peroxide Solution)

Things that you will require:

·      Cleaning towels
·      Cleaning sponge
·      Hydrogen peroxide
·      Cleaning Bleach

Steps that you will need to take:

1.   Dry up all the water from the sink with a cleaning towel.

2.   Dip the sponge in the hydrogen peroxide solution and apply to the hair dye stains in the sink.

3.   If the stains have lightened and are not yet completely cleaned, soak the cleaning towel in bleach and apply to the left over stains. This will make the stains vanish completely.

Method 2 (Using Baking Soda Solution)

Things that you will require:

·      Baking powder
·      An empty bowl
·      A sponge
·      A cleaning towel

Steps that you will need to take:

1.   Dry all the water in the sink with a cleaning towel.

2.   Take the empty bowl and mix 2 tsp. of baking soda with a few drops of water. Mix both till they form a paste.

3.   Apply the paste onto the spot. The paste should completely cover the stain.

4.   Leave the paste on till it is dry then dip the sponge in water and clean up the paste. This should make the hair dye stains in the sink/wall/floor completely vanish.

Method 3 (Using Rubbing Alcohol and Nail Polish Remover)

Things that you will require:

·      Rubbing alcohol
·      Nail polish remover
·      Cleaning towels

Steps that you will need to take:

1.   Dry all the water in the sink with a cleaning towel.

2.   Dip the cleaning towel in rubbing alcohol and apply to the stains. This should lighten the stains if the dye used was dark. If the color of the dye was light, this will completely clean the stains.

3.   In case the alcohol only lightens the stains, dip the cleaning towel in nail polish remover and apply to the stains. This will clean the lightened stains.
