Cultured marble is commonly used for bathroom sinks and kitchen countertops because of its attractive appearance and durability. If you accidentally spill hair dye on a marble surface, or if dye transfers to the surface from your hands or hair, you can easily clean it up with a common household cleanser or solvent. Unlike regular marble, cultured marble surfaces are non-porous and won’t absorb anything you spill.

Things You'll Need

  • Paper towel
  • Non-abrasive multipurpose cleaner
  • Soft cloth
  • Acetone, turpentine or nail polish remover

Video of the Day

Wipe up as much dye as possible, using a damp paper towel.

Cover the stained area with a non-abrasive cleanser and wipe it off with a soft cloth.

Rinse off the area and repeat the cleaning and rinsing pattern until the hair dye stain is completely removed. If cleaning the stain with an all-purpose cleaner proves ineffective, you will need to use a solvent.

Apply a small amount of turpentine, acetone or nail polish remover to a soft cloth and wipe the stain. Rinse the spot with water and repeat the pattern until the stain is removed.
