Hair dye is a powerful stain that will stain anything including clothes, skin and jeans. It is best to remove hair dye from clothing and jeans while it is still wet because once it is dry, that spot will permanently stay the color of the dye. You can remove hair dye stains from jeans by using household products and a scrubbing utensil. By removing the hair dye stains yourself you can save money, and brush up on your clothing care skills.
Spray hairspray on the stain right away if you saw it happen. Only do this if the stain drip or spill is fresh.
Dab a cotton ball into rubbing alcohol and rub it into the spot on the jeans. Try to go with the grain of the jeans; not in circular motions. Get as much of the stain off as you can using this method.
Dip the stain in lighter fluid and use a toothbrush to scrub on the stain. Continue scrubbing with the grain of the jeans to get as much of the stain off as possible.
Rinse the stain in a sink under cool water. Also rinse out the toothbrush to get rid of all the lighter fluid.
Mix together cream of tartar and lemon juice and apply it to the stain. Sprinkle powdered laundry detergent on top of the mixture and continue scrubbing with the toothbrush.
Rinse the stain thoroughly and wash it by itself in the washing machine.
