How do you remove an old stain from hair color on a white wooden door?
By Dana from CA
Dana, have you tried Mr Clean magic eraser? it may not take it off right away but subsequent scrubbing will make it fade. I have had this happen on painted white walls and this eventually removed the stain. Good luck!
Pikka, you are a lifesaver. I accidentally splashed hair dye onto a bathroom door this morning and thought my husband would have a fit when he saw the huge purple stain it left behind. Thankfully dabbing bleach onto the white paint worked a treat. I left it for a minute or two before washing with plain water.
Many thanks for the advice. Jen, UK
I got black hair dye on my white bathroom door. I tried painting white over it, but still comes through. What can I do?
If you hadn't painted the door this one would be easier to clean. However, you have now painted the door so you will need to buy a primer that covers up old paint or marks. My daughter decided to paint the doors in my house black at one time. I had to use a primer on this and paint it twice and then I was able to use paint to repaint the doors back to white.
Try baking soda and vinegar scrub well.I don't know if this will work because you painted the door.Try painting it a darker colour.
So I accidentally got some blue hair dye on painted wood in my bathroom. It's been a few days so I'm hoping it's not permanently stained. It's a light yellow paint if that helps.I've tried using a Mr. Clean eraser and a mix of water/dish soap/baking soda. What can I use that won't ruin the pain, but lift the stain?
it is usually best to catch stains early, but I would try leaving a baking soda paste (1:1 water and baking soda) on overnight
that ususally works well for food stains, but im not sure about hair dye!
All sites recommend the water, dish soap, and baking soda mixture to remove the dye from painted wood. If this is not working you may need to try and match the color of your paint, use some sandpaper and sand down the area and paint it again.
