    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.

    Nail polish remover: Beware that nail polish remover will strip paint, so avoid using it on painted surfaces. For solid surfaces and porcelain, it should be fine. Just wipe the spots down with nail polish remover.

    Rubbing alcohol: Rubbing alcohol is an underutilized house cleaner that deserves its due. Swab the stained surfaces with rubbing alcohol. It really works. Hydrogen peroxide also removes stains like hair dye.

    A lot of folks say that scrubbing the dyed surface with WD-40 is the surest way to get rid of the stain. Just wear gloves, okay?

    DO NOT mix any cleaners. If one doesn't work rinse it off well before trying another.
