For anyone that dyes their hair often or regularly uses a dark colour, they know the battle of trying to remove it from the sides of their faces, their ears, their neck and sometimes even the little splashes that appear on their arms and hands. 

The skin where dye tends to fall is often quite delicate, so you will want to use the most gentle method possible.

And while a professional product designed to remove dye stains is the easiest and most effective option, we all don't have that lying around the house.

Instead, putting laundry detergent, dish soap, baby oil OR olive oil on a damp cloth and gently rubbing the skin will do the trick.

Detergent will work the fastest, but those with sensitive skin may want to avoid this and use an oil, which softens the skin and helps break up the colour. 

It will take a few minutes of rubbing to remove the dye completely, but thank god for these simple tricks, or else half of us would be going around with mud-coloured necks.
