DIY: How to Remove Hair Dye from Porcelain!
For some reason, I tend to dye my hair in hotel rooms. Don’t ask me why. I just do. On a recent trip to Reno, a true to form, me did just that. I knew I was going to dye my hair, so I brought my own towel in an effort to prevent staining anything that didn’t belong to me (YAY for thinking ahead!). Well, when I got done, I realized that I had stained their tub. FANTASTIC! I could almost hear my better half commenting on the extra cleaning charges we’d incur because I decided to dye my hair there. So (while still hearing his voice in my head), I jumped in the car and drove myself to the Dollar Tree to pick up my solution to the problem. And here’s where the lesson begins:
Here’s what you’re going to need:
- A Hair Dye Stain
- Effervescent Denture Cleaner (Dollar Tree version is perfect)
- Wash towel or rag
Step 1: Freak out over having stained your porcelain with dye.
Step 2: Open effervescent denture cleaner and place into a plate or bowl.
Step 3: Crush the tablet and add a few drops of water. You want enough to make a paste.
Step 4: Once your paste is ready, use a washcloth or a rag to rub the paste in small circles over the stained area.
Step 5: Let the paste sit over the stain for 10-15 minutes.
Step 6: Use a warm (almost hot) washcloth or rag to wipe down the stained area.
Step 7: Revel in your stain removal success.
*If for some reason you still have a stain, simply repeat the process until it disappears.
As for how my story ends?Â Let’s just say, there won’t be extra hotel cleaning charges this time! 😉
Thanks for reading! I hope this helps you out if you ever find yourself in a stained porcelain bind!
