I am on my way out, but before I go, two questions I am sorry to have to ask:

1. How do you get hair dye off of your hairline? Other than reminding your hairstylist to do it at the end of the cut (as I told her I would do, and then forgot, and now I’m running off to an event where I am the designated greeter, of course). Methods attempted: wet paper towel in office restroom, positive thinking a la Oprah's "The Secret".

2. How do you get egg off of a windshield? Wiper fluid does not work! DAMNED KIDS!

Off I go, face full of dye, windshield half-obscured by albumen. GOOD TIMES.

rubbing alcohol or face toner. it'll take a bit more rubbing for permanent dye, but it works like a dream for temp stuff. also, if you have a face scrub, i'd do that first.

(mind you, i cover my skin and ears and back of neck w/vaseline when i dye my hair because i'm such a messy klutz.)

good luck!

The toner worked this time, but I will remember the rubbing alcohol thing for times in the future!

The face toner worked AMAZINGLY - thank you, Miss Amy!

And I might just bring vaseline with me the next time I get my hair dye.

(Copied from an auto care site)

Step 1: If possible, do not allow the egg to sit on the car for an extended period, especially in the sun. Every second counts. As soon as you discover the mess, begin steps to clean the vehicle.

Step 2: Using your hand, remove all traces of the egg shell from the car.

Step 3: Once pieces of the egg shell are removed, clean the egg and yolk from the car using a soft towel. It is important to remove all traces of the egg shell. This way, you avoid scratching the surface of the car.

Step 4: Create a mixture using 1 part water and 1 part vinegar.

Step 5: Soak a towel in the mixture, and place it on the egg stain. You may also spray the mixture onto the car using a spray bottle. Allow the towel to sit for at least 15 minutes.

Step 6: Remove the towel. Dry the area using a different towel.

Step 7: If necessary, repeat steps 5 and 6.

Unfortunately, if the egg was not immediately removed, there may be damaged to the car’s paint. Review your insurance policy or vehicle warranty to see whether car egging is covered. If not, be prepared to pay a hefty price to have portions of the vehicle re-painted.

BUDDY! I still owe you an e-mail! Thank you for this advice, it is v. helpful! Most of my egg came off the next morning b/c we got a frost and when I scraped the ice off the windshield, the egg came, too. Luckily there was no egg on the paint! I know that does cause a lot of damage.
