Yes! The Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner with Bleach worked so well, even after trying nail polish remover and Mr. Clean Magic Erasers. My walls were eggshell white and the hair dye was a dark brown.

I'm in a dorm where the walls are white and stained it with bright blue hair dye... Just use toothpaste and a warm soapy towel, and it should bring it right off

I am about to leave my rented apartment and have been trying everything to get black hair dye off the cream walls in the bathroom. I tried everything, hairspray, nail polish remover, bleach, toilet cleaner, WD40, toothpaste and nothing would get it off.

Finally I found the Chux Magic Eraser in Cole's and problem solved! It gets it off without affecting the paint at all! If you're in Australia and looking for these they are in supermarkets near the Chux cloths. Hope this helps!

Does anyone know how to get red hair dye off of a newly painted light green bathroom wall? I used hairspray, ammonia, and gentle Soft Scrub. They haven't worked. I'm afraid to use bleach as it might turn it white. Any ideas?

Hopefully you kept some of the paint so you can touch up the spot. :-(

I don't think bleach should hurt your paint. Try it on an inconspicuous spot to see. Bleach takes the color out of things that are dyed, like clothing. Paint is not the same thing.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. lol. I too have red hair and have made a lot of mess over the years. What works for me on walls, counter tops, and even the floor are the Mr. Clean Sponges. They are amazing and work for me every time. Hope this helps.

How do I get hair dye off a painted bathroom wall after it has dried for a few minutes? OK, so my wife dyed her hair in my mom's bathroom which of course she did not see it at the time. She tried cleaning it and so did I and I think it may have eaten through the paint. So does that mean I have to paint the walls. Cause I don't think any cleaner will work.

I think your mum just won a new paint job for her bathroom. Stuff happens. Apologise profusely and ask her if she'd like a different colour or any decoration changes while you're at the repair job.

And hey, if she's anything like me, she'll say 'Oh, there's a tin of the paint in the garage for just this sort of mishap:)' and all you'll have to do is a spot job.
