How do you get dye stains out of polyeurathane?

You can probably remove the dye with dishwasher detergent. I used dishwasher detergent to remove jet black permanent hair dye from a white formica counter top. It removed the dye 100%. You couldn't even see a trace of the dye. If dishwasher detergent can remove black permanent hair dye, it can remove just about any dye. You want the dishwasher detergent that says it DOES contain bleach. Pour the detergent on the marks. Let that sit overnight. Then wipe the detergent away with wet paper towels. For some reason, dishwasher detergent works better than Clorox. (I tried Clorox, and it didn't work for me.)

What happenes if you put regular dish detergent in the dishwasher?

It works without any difference that I could notice.Addendum:It will depend on how much and what type you use. Most regular liquid dish detergents foam heavily with agitation. If this happens inside your dishwasher, the seal may leak. Dishwasher detergent (like laundry detergent) is formulated to be less sudsing. do not, however, make the mistake of using laundry detergent in your dishwasher. You would actually be better off running the dishwasher without soap.
