Could someone tell me what will clean my bath, as my daughter dyed her hair black and now it won't come out. I've tried vinegar and baking powder, bleach, and other cleaning products. I would be most grateful if you could help me. Regards.

Try soft scrub with bleach and a white eraser together, that should get it out.

Did you try The Works toilet bowl cleaner? It removes hair dye splashes from paint.


They also make a tub cleaner. I get mine at the dollar store but they also sell it at grocery stores, Walmart, Target, etc. Good luck.

Have you tried Greased Lightning? Is is sold in grocery stores in the household cleaning section. Another idea is to run a small amount of water in the tub and drop in about two denture cleaning tablets. Allow it to sit overnight. It might be worth a try.

I had the same problem. After trying several different things, I bought some Lysol 4 in 1 spray cleaner. It worked!

Where fabric dyes are sold, they also sell dye out products. I would test a small hidden area first so not to mess up tub finish. :)
