Dying over benzoil peroxide stains
  • My daughter's favorite grey dress recently started to develop some orange/rust colored stains. Too late, we discovered that it was coming from her benzoil peroxide acne medication and there is no way to remove them. By using a darker grey dye than the dress, is it possible to cover the stains? Or will they show through/ react with the dye? Thank you so much for your help!
  • Hi Mary,

    Generally you can expect variations in the original color to be evident in the over dyed color. However, if you went with a very deep grey or black you could probably cover the stains.
    You will want to give the dress a good washing, I'd recommend Synthrapol for the pre-wash.

  • Thank you very much!!!
