If your angsty teenage years didn’t introduce you to DIY hair dye products, then there’s a good chance quarantine probably did. Switching up hair colors between seasons, brightening or darkening tones, or adding a pop of bold, semi-permanent color are popular cosmetic trends, but salon prices and upkeep are not cheap. Of course, at-home hair coloring products are conveniently sold at stores all over and can help you achieve the look you’re going for at a much lower cost. Unfortunately, they’re also considerably effective at staining sinks, tiles, and other bathroom surfaces.
If a recent at-home hair treatment left your bathroom sink with some unwanted color, don’t shop for that sink upgrade just yet. There are several tricks—both natural and chemical—that you can try, and with the right supplies and a little elbow grease, you should be able to completely remove hair dye from your sink and make your bathroom shiny-clean. And if you’re thinking about dying your hair at home, we also have tips on how to prevent dye stains in the first place.
