Cleaning Hairspray in the Bathroom

3 Tips for Cleaning Hairspray Off Bathroom Surfaces

Hairspray. Wonderful on your hair, not so great on everything else. Unless you go outside to spray your hair, you’ll need to periodically clean up the hairspray overspray.

  1.  Use rubbing alcohol (70%) on a cotton ball or soft cloth to dissolve hairspray droplets and that fine layer of spray you can feel on mirrors, faucets, natural stone countertops and tile, and most cultured marble surfaces. You may have to go over the spots many times to completely dissolve the hardened droplets of spray; then clean the area again with plain water or a cleaner of your choice to remove any smears and streaks. Try a microfiber cloth for this final wipe – they’re great!
  2. Painted or stained wood doors and woodwork can also be cleaned with rubbing alcohol if plain water isn’t doing the trick. You can also use a dab of hair shampoo on a damp cloth to dissolve the hairspray. Whichever method you choose, be sure to follow up with a damp cloth and then dry.
  3. Mix ¼ cup rubbing alcohol + a few drops of dish soap + 12 oz. of water in a spray bottle to get painted walls and wood floors
