The Time I Dyed the Shower Purple

So, remember when my BFF and I decided to put purple streaks in our hair this past August? No? Let me remind you:

The purple didn't last too long in my hair, but you know where it did last?

My shower walls. Yeah. They started off very purple. Very. Purple. I promised Marshall that one day I would clean those walls and restore them to their previously pristine "old lace" status.

Except I didn't. Whoops. I meant to. Really I did. I had hoped that over time the color would simply go away. Between two kids bathing and two adults showering I figured it would disappear down the drain.

The color did, however, fade. Purple turned to pink. But it was still, well, pink. And very apparent on my shower walls.

Eventually I got the motivation I needed to remedy the situation. My in-laws were coming up for a visit. And while the kids thought the pink shower was pretty awesome, I highly doubted my mother-in-law would feel the same way.

It took a lot of elbow grease and more bleach that I would care to admit, but finally my walls did come clean. The purple was no more.

Maybe next time I'll dye my hair blue...

Disclaimer: I am writing this post to take part in SITS Girls' giveaway. My shower walls were very purple/pink and I really did need to clean them. Which, eventually, I did.
