Randy asked: How do I remove red hair dye from the bathroom sink? My wife was dyeing her hair in the bathroom sink (plastic of some kind, not porcelain). I have tried bleach with scratch pad and GOJO hand cleaner.
Here’s a tried-and-true tactic for removing stubborn stains from a whole myriad of surfaces. If it doesn’t work for your situation, check out the tips and advice section for more ideas to try.
You Will Need:
- Bar Keepers Friend
- Cloth scouring pad
Steps to Remove the Stain:
- Wet the area over the stain.
- Sprinkle on a heavy coat of Bar Keepers Friend. (Use the powdered version of this product. It can be found in the cleaning aisle of most supermarkets.)
- Use the cloth scouring pad to work the powder into a paste. Add more water if necessary.
- Allow the paste to sit over the affected area for about 20 minutes or until it begins to dry. Ideally, don’t let it dry on the surface.
- Scrub the area with the same cloth scouring pad. Rinse and repeat if needed.
Additional Tips and Advice
- Need more ideas? Try one of these: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, toilet bowl cleaner with bleach, white toothpaste, laundry detergent, or bleach. Do not try more than one at a time. You should not mix cleaning chemicals.
- If the stain is inside the sink, another option to try is to fill the sink with water (to cover the stain) and then add a couple of denture cleaner tablets.
