Removing Hair Dye from a Bathroom Sink

November 3, 2011

Woman dying her hair at home looking into a mirror.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. 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!

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.

I will really appreciate it if someone has advice on how to take out hair color from a white basin top?

I don't know what you mean by 'basin top'. If the basin is vitreous china and has been stained with regular (not metallic) hair color, pure household bleach should remove the color completely.


If the stain is small, the bleach can be applied with a cotton swab. You should see results in a matter of minutes.

How do I remove black hair dye from my sink? Usually, I am able to remove hair dye from the sink after coloring my hair using Ajax.
