No experience but the first thing I would try on a small patch is Cif on a clean cloth . Good luck

If it's still wet, zap it with hairspray pronto to stop the stain from setting. If it's already stained, I'd cover it with a babywipe and leave it for an hour before trying to wipe it.

Toothpaste? It works on getting stains off the bath.

Baby wipe, of course! Why didn't I think of that?? Thanks grin

Toothpaste can be good at removing some stains, then remove the toothpaste stain with WD40

Then what do you use to remove the WD40 stain? wink

Didn't have much luck with the baby wipes, but have squirted it with some Flash (the one with bleach in) & it has faded quite a bit. Now pale pink splodges rather than full on red!

Plastic dust sheets on the floor next time I think. Thanks again x

An 'it works' cube works for anything.

You can buy hair dye remover for hair (can't remember the name) but its designed to remove hair dye from hair and take it back to the natural colour. Boots sell it but its about £11, I'm sure other shops will sell it but I've not looked. It might be worth a try. I keep meaning to get some as I got a bit of dye on my carpet like an idiot.

this is why I always stick towels on the floor when dying my hair!

It's nearly gone!

I did have a towel on the floor - it had shifted a bit where I opened the door & of course, the tiny bit of exposed floor was where the drips went.

I got hair dye on the door once and didnt notice until I moved my head to check the sides - it was a bigger to get off too (it was a foam one and must have flicked it when applying to my hair)

So easy to do isn't it? This is a dye I haven't used before & is a bit runnier than usual (that's my excuse anyway).

Krazy - those carpet cleaners you can hire have all different types of stain removers that go with them - might be a bit late to save your carpet now but may be worth a try? (Or failing that, strategically placed rug??)

Well my hair is a lot less red than the floor was! Still it's an improvement on orange with grey roots what it was smile And now I have bleach marks on my towels...
