How to Clean Hair Dye from Carpet


Getting hair dye out of carpet is tough - and if you're to have much luck it's best if you can get at the stain immediately. Here's what to do:

Things You'll Need

  • Dishwashing Liquid
  • Cleaning Cloths
  • Cloth
  • Vinegar
  • Blot the stain immediately with a clean, white cloth.

  • Mix a solution of 1/4 tsp. liquid hand-dishwashing soap and 1 cup lukewarm water.

  • Blot stain with soap solution, using a clean, white cloth. Blot from the outside of the stain, working inward.

  • Let sit a few minutes.

  • Mix a solution of 1 part vinegar to 2 parts lukewarm water.

  • Dab stain with vinegar solution, again working from the outside in.

  • Once the stain has disappeared, flush the area with cold water and blot dry with a clean, white cloth.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you don't have success with these methods, you will have to call in a professional carpet cleaner.
