Ok, so now your bathtub, sink, or skin is stained?? oops!!
Here are some clean tips:
For cleaning up the tub/sink - Ajax, Comet, Lysol Plus Bleach All Purpose Cleaner, and similar products should do the trick. I use Clorox Soft Scrub with Bleach and it works very well.
For cleaning up your skin The first thing to try is soap, sometimes that will do the trick. You can also try toothpaste, or body scrubs. There are also specialty products you can buy to remove dye from your skin. I have tried Clean Touch by Revlon and it worked well. You can also try using facial astringents to help remove dye from your skin. This will however dry your skin so use with caution.Do not use household cleaning products with harsh chemicals to remove dye from your skin. Such chemicals can be toxic and cause chemical burns, or other serious problems. Stick with finding a solution that is safe for your skin.
