One very annoying thing about dyeing the hair to changeits color is that the hair dye often leaves stains on everything, including thebody, the bathroom tiles and the towels.
Thankfully, there is an easy way to remove the stains.
A person wants to change the color of his or her hair, notthe neck, hands or bathroom. Some people usually try logical methods, likeusing warm water, soap or shampoo, but with little success. Even when theperson scrubs for a long time, the tough stain will not come out.
There are better ways to remove the stains, however.
Though some of the remedies might seem a little strange andunorthodox at first, they will certainly help, because they have been tried bymany and been proven to work effectively.
They are stubborn stains, because the hair dye is verystrong, which is obvious by the long amount of time that it stays in the hairwhen applied, despite numerous washings and sometimes daily shampooing.
If the clothes are stained and this is noticed immediately,spray the area with, believe it or not, hair spray completely to saturate it.After this is done, wash the clothes in the washing machine as usual and checkto make sure that the stain has gone away completely before putting the articleof clothing in the drying machine.
Also try putting vinegar and warm water on the stain. Spraya white vinegar and water mixture right on the stance and wipe it until it iscompletely removed.
Another way is to dab the stain with rubbing alcohol, but itis important to use a clean cloth. If the article of clothing is made out ofwool or cotton, apply lighter fluid or turpentine to the stain. If it is madeout of a synthetic fabric like polyester, dab the stain with a clean cloth andhydrogen peroxide.
If none of the aforementioned methods work, then take the clothesand soak them in dish detergent, water, and a drop of ammonia. This will workbest with cotton clothes.
Another way of doing this is to gently brush the stain with a toothbrushusing a mixture of cream of tartar and lemon juice. It is important to scrub instraight lines, not in circles, and then apply liquid laundry detergent to it.
Removing the hair dye from tiles or marble is a different problemaltogether.
For these instances, apply rubbing alcohol directly to thestain sparingly and clean the surface.
For towels or bath mats and rugs, use carpet cleaner andwarm water to remove the stain.
When the dye is on the skin, use nail polish remover orrubbing alcohol to scrub away the stain. Believe it or not, putting toothpasteon a toothbrush and then scrubbing the stain will also work. Lava soap and warmwater is another solution that works.
Another strange one is cigarette ash, but it works. Take thecigarette ashes and mix them with a few drops of water and then scrub the stainwith this mixture.
