How to Remove Hair Dye From Clothing


Accidents happen from time to time and can damage our clothing. Sometimes hair dye accidentally gets on our clothes when we're dyeing our hair. Fortunately there are some homemade solutions to help get dye out of your clothes. This article will show you how to get hair dye stains out of cotton, polyester, and nylon clothes.

Things You'll Need

  • Dish-washing detergent
  • Ammonia
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • White vinegar
  • Brush

Removing Stains from Cotton Clothing

  • Mix ingredients of 1/2 teaspoon dishwashing detergent, 1 tablespoon ammonia, and about 1 quart of warm water.

  • Soak the spot on the cotton garment or the whole article of clothing itself in the solution for about a half minute.

  • Rinse the article of clothing in water immediately after the solution has been applied.

  • Rub the spot lightly with a brush once the rinsing is complete. You should also blot the spot on the cotton clothing with rubbing alcohol.

  • Rinse the article of cotton clothing once again in water. It must be completely before doing anything else.

  • Place your cotton clothing in the washing machine as soon as it's completely dry and clean it as normal with the rest of your clothes.

Removing Stains from Polyester and Nylon

  • Use white vinegar: The solution for removing stains from polyester and nylon is very similar to the one used for cotton clothing, except for the fact that white vinegar will be added and ammonia subtracted. The solution should contain 1 quart warm water, 1 tablespoon of white vinegar, and 1/2 teaspoon dishwashing detergent.

  • Soak the nylon or polyester clothing in the solution in step 1 for only about 15-25 seconds.

  • Rinse well with water following the application of the vinegar and detergent solution.

  • Wash the clothes, after rinsing, in the washing machine as soon as possible along with your other regular clothes.

  • Following the cleaning in the washing machine, hair dye stains should be removed.
