Those people, who dye hair at home and don’t have much experience in this matter, often forget about protecting the place they perform this manipulation. The most drastic problem is related to spoiling the carpet with hair dye splashes. If you have also faced this problem, make sure to try the following methods of how to remove hair dye from a carpet.
STEP 1 Blot Up Hair Dye
First off, you need to use a clean fabric to blot up hair dye. Take something that you can throw out without regrets as the cloth will be spoilt after such actions. Be attentive and just blot the stain without scrubbing. You may need to use several pieces of cloth to get as much dye as possible.
STEP 2 Prepare Cleaning Solution
Preparing a cleaning solution to get rid of hair dye on a carpet is actually very simple. You just need to mix dish soap (1 tablespoon), white vinegar (1 tablespoon), and water (2 cups). Spread this mixture on the dye stains and gently work it with a soft fabric or sponge. You may need to have a soft cloth at hand to use for absorbing liquid. You will notice that stains become lighter.
STEP 3 Use Alcohol
Measure 1 tablespoon of isopropyl alcohol and pour it on the stain. Then start blotting it up with a paper towel. At this stage, there should be almost no signs of hair dye left. Then, pour cold water on the carpet.
