now if you could pause in your latest demented killing sprees i need some practical tips. how do you clean up your bathrooms and leave them sparkling fresh after your hobby has led to a particularly messy crime scene? i am planning to move in a couple of months and i have some stubborn stains that i wish to remove so as the landlord has no reason to withhold my deposit. some of the stains are blood (from the time my brother visted and nearly cut his face off while shaving) and some are hairdye splashes that i didn't notice at the time. normal cleaners don't work so any ideas?

Your screwed, hair dye is permanent!!! Just give him the cash and make it his problem. Why are you using hair dye anyway? Rabbits always look better with that natural look! We do the dying after we skin them for the coats we make and we pick out the colors! tdemex

why do you know some much about hairdye? judging by your photo you do not appear to have any hair to dye. i dye my hair sometimes because it gets bleached in the sun, even here, and i do not like the tangerine streaks this produces.

Tangerine I love them! Your bunny hair would look funny that color, unless you were a punk bunny? Might be fun! The reason I know so much about the dye is because your not the only one to be so careless with other peoples property! I managed apartments for 8 years and had to clean up messes left by other careless, clueless chicks! This stuff is permanent! They charge big bucks to replace the floor coverings! Get out your checkbook! Your friend forever! T------

Yikes, I know that Oxy Clean will removed dried blood from fabrics where nothing else will. Don't know about cleaning it from bathrooms though. Where do you hide the bodies?

now dawn, please note that unlike certain respondees here i am not actually a serial killer. i simply have a careless family. i wouldn't know where to hide bodies but this being scotland i would assume that simple leaving them out to be collected along with the rest of the wheelie bin contents would create no raised eyebrows.

what's your mass murdering theme going to be?

What a great way to start this discussion! I love it. Anyway, I was thinking back to all the books I've read and tv shows I watch and the things they do. If your landlord is not a forensic person and doesn't have access to the "blue light" then usually the killer uses bleach first and then paints over the "evidence". If it is particularly bad, the killer usually rips up the flooring and replaces it (the killer still gets caught because blood can seep under the floorboards) If none of the above, the killer usually will blow up and burn the crime scene. This isn't particularly helpful to you but I enjoyed responding to this!

thankyou. i think it probably will come down to painting over, especially the hairdye ones. might try something like nail varnish remover first but if anyone else has good ideas then please let me know...

I bought your dilemma to some people I know and they suggested, Mr. Clean's Magic Eraser. They are a firm believer it works magic. Hope that is a better response than my original.

your first response was also excellent - and provided i'm sure many useful tips for the serial killers that have responded to this discussion.

Bakng soda paste not only removes stubborn stains but will sanitize,deodorize and absorb while using.After just rinse it with ammonia water.Makes no difference what the size of the mess ,good old baking soda always does the trick. I have used the mr.clean white erasers and noticed that a build up starts if you use it in the same spot . Could just be me.Always better to be sorry when in a situation such as yours will be .Time is of the essence.Sorry I can't help

i know. hairdye doesn't stain if you get rid of it immediately but i had missed some splashes. perhaps i'd have been better off bleaching my hair however i don't really want to go blonde purely for the sake of having less mess to clear up...

Just go to the internet and asked those questions, you will have all kinds of ideas after some time on the WWW. Some may work, but many won't. Anyway, no harm trying the easier ones out.Anyway, you do have a strange title to attract attention to your posting.

fair enough - although thought i might as well ask for some advice here. as far as the title goes - 'how do i remove annoying stains' is a bit dull and anyway i wanted to see how many serial killers came out of the closet...

I'm afraid I can't help you, because I generally strangle my victims instead of stabbing them- less mess, and very little or no blood to clean up. But I'll ask some of my friends on SKA (serial killers anonymous) We're on the fifth step now, so they should be eager to help others.

ska - are you trying to give up your pastime or simply share handy hints?

jb78000 well now why not try plain old baking soda in warm'water and maybe some oxiclean as oxiclean took ink stains off my blouse so maybe it would work on hairdye splashes. baking soda should work on blood stains. try it anyway its not expensive.
@jb78000 (15173)

thankyou hatley. i hadn't thought of baking soda but it's an excellent idea - and much less polluting than bleach etc. will be starting with that one. i think we get oxiclean here - name seems to ring a bell so will bear that in mind too. judith

The blood should come off with bleach and good luck on the hair color, soft scrub worked ok but, not perfect. Do you have soft scrub there?
@jb78000 (15173)

probably. going to try bleach first on all of them. the baking soda idea (below) sounds like a good one. actually will probably try that out to begin with.

If it stains will try repainting it but check on the price of the paint plus the possible penalty that you will be charged plus effort in painting. Compare the two if one is a bit lesser than the other example by paying the penalty simply pay the penalty it is now the problem of the landlord. But the problem is make sure you will no come back with that apartment because I guess.

this is very sensible advice and the reason i was looking for alternatives to repainting.
