Removing Hair Dye from Countertop

I split a few drops of red hair coloring when I dyed my hair. I cleaned it up but you can still see the faint outlines. How do I get this off my white melamine vanity? Can I paint it? Has anyone every had this problem?

Have you tried letting liquid chlorine bleach sit on the spot for a few minutes? That's worked for me for berry stains. Don't leave it on there any longer than necessary, so there's no damage. Good luck!

I haven't tried it on hair dye (only grape juice) but the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser did it for my counter top.

I think you might have sucess with Mr Clean Eraser they are magic, and I have removed hair dye from the white painted shelf in my bathroom with one.

As a blonde that is "dyeing" for intelligence, I feel your pain. I have struggled for a long time with this. My bathtub looks like we filmed a horror movie. What I found worked for me and 3 other false redheads was a bleach gel pen.

Mr clean eraser will do it. I now use the generic cheap ones sold at dollar general stores. They work just as well.
