To save money, many of us dye our hair at home. Whether it’s blonde, brown, red, black, or even purple, the colors we choose are dark and bright, which means they can easily show up on tile and grout. Accidents happen and we can easily spill or splatter hair dye while dying our hair in the bathroom or kitchen. Hair dye can be hard to clean off grout because the liquid quickly absorbs into the grout lines. It actually can be hard to get off tiles, as well.
Since grout is porous and usually light-colored, it will easily absorb the bright hair dye and become discolored. With the right grout cleaning and sealing products, you can clean up the hair dye and it will look like the spill never happened. Remember, you want to clean up hair dye immediately, so the stain is easier to clean up.
Our team at Grout Shield can help you get rid of hair dye stains for good. You’ll never know it was there! Hair dye stains on your counter, backsplash, or floor can make your kitchen or bathroom look really old and dirty, even if you clean it regularly.
Besides getting rid of the discoloration, Grout Shield products also rid the grout of bacteria and other harmful germs that get absorbed into the grout lines over time.
Many home-cleaning articles may tell you to clean up the hair dye with bleach, ammonia or white vinegar. Sure, these chemicals and products may work, but they also aren’t really cleaning the grout, and many of these chemicals can actually cause the grout to crack or break.
To remove the hair dye stains, you want to first blot the area dry with a clean cloth. Wipe the area clean of the dye. You may notice your grout is stained with a color now. To remove the dye, you will want to use Grout Shield’s Grout & Tile Deep Cleaner, which cleans and lifts deep and hard-to-clean stains out of the grout’s pores.
To use this cleaner, mix 1 ounce of the cleaner with 8 ounces of warm water. Then, brush the cleaner into the grout with a brush applicator. Let the mixture sit into the grout lines for a few minutes. Then, wipe away the cleaner with a sponge and towel dry the floor. The hair dye will be gone.
Now, if the dye still won’t fully disappear, you can make the grout color look like new again with Grout Shield’s color sealer. You just squeeze the sealer into the grout lines. Then, spread it into the grout lines with a brush applicator or your finger and wipe away the excess with a towel or chamois. You can choose any color in the world to recolor your grout. Check out our grout colors.
If you don’t need to recolor your grout, you should seal it with a clear grout sealer after cleaning it, to protect it from future spills and accidents. Since you likely dye your hair regularly, the sealer will prevent future hair dye from seeping into the grout lines, and you can wipe the dye right up with no stains left behind.
