Question:

how to remove a clorox stain from a bathroom vanity top?

I had some black hair dye accidentally get on my bathroom vanity top. The vanity top is white not marble not granite not sure the material. The apartment is very new everything is pretty high end so it may be marble but the color is white. I put bleach on the stain to remove it but it turned it a light green color? Should I try more bleach? Or just hire a professional cleaner to try and remove the mess?has anyone experienced this? Please help, I do not want to be out say over 100 bucks to repair this hopefully I will not have to replace the top.Thank youJason

Answer:

I recently had a similar problem, and I did the same thing cats 3 recommended. I used baking soda and a good sponge, and it scrubbed out 99.9% of the stain. It was someone else's bathroom counter, so it saved my hyde from getting in trouble. Baking soda or toothpaste can do wonders!

Since there's also peroxide (a form of bleach) in the hair dye...putting more bleach won't improve your vanity stain.....Try a paste with baking soda and water, putting a damp (old) towel over the stain for 24 hours......keep dampening the towel or cover it with plastic wrap to prevent it drying out!....Sometimes HAIR turns green when too much color is too different from the last i.e. brown to blonde......which makes the hair green (such as someone who dyes their hair blonde & then goes into a swimming pool....then it turns a nasty green color being in a chlorinated pool)!
