Dyeing your hair can cause a lot of damage to your bathroom if you aren't careful. If you have splattered or dripped the hair dye on the glass shower door in your bathroom, you can get it off if you know what products to use to do so. Below, you will find the instructions for removing hair dye from glass shower doors.

To remove hair dye from glass shower doors you will need:

  • Super absorbent paper towels
  • Cotton balls
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Baking soda
  • Hydrogen Peroxide

Blot with Dry Paper Towels

If the hair dye is still wet, blot it with dry paper towels. Do your best to absorb as much of the dye as possible without spreading it to unaffected areas. Work quickly, but in small sections at a time. You want to remove as much of the dye while it is wet and before it has a chance to stain the glass.

Clean with Rubbing Alcohol

Apply some rubbing alcohol to a cotton ball. Don't oversaturate the cotton ball because you don't want the rubbing alcohol to drip down the glass door once it has become colored with the hair dye.

Blot the dye spots, working to remove the dye as best you can. Keep a clean, dry paper towel in one hand to catch any drips that may begin to run down the shower door. Use the paper towel to blot the stain every now and then to check to see if it has come off yet.

Treat Tough Stains

If your shower door is frosted, you may have a more difficult time getting the hair dye to come off. In this case, make a paste-like mixture of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda. Smear the paste onto the stains and let it sit for several minutes.

After a few minutes have passed, apply a small amount of peroxide to a clean paper towel and rinse the dried paste off of the glass. If the stain remains, repeat the process. This could take several applications before the stain is no longer visible.

Finish the Job

Once you have removed the hair dye, use your favorite glass cleaner to clean the shower doors. To prevent stains from setting in as quickly in the future, apply a coat of glass water repellant to the surface. This will help to keep the hair dye from settling into the glass and make it more easily cleaned up before a stain sets in.

If you have tried the above processes and have not had any luck, talk with your local shower enclosure technician to discuss any other options that you may have to remove the stains. (For information on custom shower doors, you can contact Rex Glass & Mirror Co., Inc.)
