Many people choose to do dye jobs on hair for variety of reasons. Whether it is lack of time, finances, or simply you believe you do it better than a professional, doing the dye job in the comfort of your home suits you best. Unfortunately, it is common that hair color gets on more places than just your head. When the hair dye lands on the tile or countertops, it can be easily wiped clean, however, when it lands on the carpet, there is a little bit more involved and we at Go Green Carpet Cleaning & Restoration would like to share it.

How to Get Spilled Hair Dye Out of Carpet

1) Use a spoon or dull edge to scrape the glop up, being gentle to not push more dye into the carpet and smear it off on the paper towel.
2) Blot with paper towels with gently pressure, just enough to lift the surface residues. Don’t mash the dye into carpet.
3) Combine 2 cups of warm water, do not use hot, 1 TBS liquid dish soap and 1 TBS white vinegar in a spray bottle or pale and mix well.
4) Use a cloth treated with a mixture to blot the stain. In between applications blot with a dry cloth to keep the moisture under control as you do not want to over saturate the area.
5) Repeat until the stain fades away.
6) Once the stain is near gone, use clean water to dampen a cloth to blot and rinse the solution away.
7) Dry the area by blotting the moisture with dry towel.
8) Apply rubbing alcohol to a cotton swab and continue blotting what is left of the hair color.
9) Rinse with clean water damp cloth and blot the alcohol residue clean. If the stain persists, move on to the steps below, if not, dry the areas as best you can with a towel.
10) Combine 2 cups of warm water1 TSP of liquid dish soap, and 1 TBS ammonia in a squirt bottle.
11) Lightly mist the remaining stain. Allow the mixture to sit for 30 minutes, but return every 5 minutes or so to blot with a dry cloth.
12) Use a damp cloth with clean water and pat the area.
13) If the stain remains, you can mist hydrogen peroxide and leave it over night and rinse well. Keep in mind hydrogen peroxide could lighten the carpet as well so use caution.
Warning: Before you use any DIY remedy or carpet cleaner, be sure to perform a patch test in an inconspicuous area to ensure it does not lighten or compromise the carpet.
