How to Remove Hair Color Stains From Porcelain
Drips can occur when dyeing your hair. (hair dyeing image by Mikhail Malyshev from

From time to time, people colouring their hair have an "oops" moment and dribble some of the dye onto the porcelain sink. If the dye is not wiped away immediately, there is a good chance it will create a stain. Fortunately, hair colour stains on porcelain are not permanent and are easily removed with regular household cleaning items. Because porcelain is somewhat delicate in nature, it is important to test a small, inconspicuous area of the porcelain before proceeding.

Things you need

  1. 1

    Mix together one part hydrogen peroxide or bleach with three parts warm water.

  2. 2

    Dip a colour-fast cloth into the diluted cleaner and saturate it. Be careful to avoid dripping on carpets and towels.

  3. 3

    Wring a small amount of the cleaner out of the cloth onto the stain. Let the diluted cleaner sit for about five to 10 seconds.

  4. 4

    Rub the stained area in a circular motion with the cloth until the stain is removed. Rinse the area with water. Repeat the process if the stain is not removed.

Tips and warnings

  • Do not put hydrogen peroxide or bleach on porcelain at full strength.
  • Do not let the diluted cleaner sit on the porcelain for more than the indicated time.
