This works perfectly! After searching web sites to find out how to remove hair dye from the bathroom sink, I finally found the perfect solution on my own! Take pure liquid bleach. Pour it on the dye stains on the sink. DO NOT dilute the bleach. Let it stand for 30 minutes and the dye will be completely gone! You can let the bleach stand longer if it's a deeper dye stain. Make sure to open the bathroom window and close the door, so that the fumes don't escape and you don't inhale them. =)

I was dying my hair recently and freaked out when I got hair dye on my bathroom sink. We rent our place and I was worried the landlord would have a cow! I tried Scrubbing Bubbles bathroom cleaner and almost cried when it didn't work. I didn't have any bleach and didn't want to go to the store but thought of something.
Since I was dying my hair, of course I had to bleach it. I took my cream developer and my powdered bleach and mixed them together to make a creamy paste and coated the dyed areas with it. I let it sit for 30 minutes or so and BAM! I was so happy it all disappeared and looks great!

Hair dye has stained my bathroom sink. Any ideas of how to get rid of it?

VERY, very carefully. Years ago I stained my sink with hair dye. Well my roomie was having a party that eve so I hurried. I first used ajax then comet no change. Then I used amonia still stain remained. I used 2 other cleaners before it finally came out. Hours later during party a loud popping and cracking sound was heard from bathroom. The sink blew up! Shards of porcelain were in hall and everywhere! How embarrasing. That is my tale so be careful.

Thanks so much.

Now the big question is: How to avoid getting stains in the sink when I dye my hair? Any ideas anyone?

I had this crazy thought. It might work or it might not! Try drying your sink very thoroughly, maybe even using the blow dryer on it! Then spray the dried sink with Pam or some other type of non-stick cooking spray. As long as you don't get the spray in or on your hair before the coloring process it shouldn't affect your color. If you try this let us know if it works. (06/19/2006)
