Fun with laundry

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Brand new dark dark blue jeans in the wash. In the same load, an eggshell color shirt managed to sneak its way in. Said shirt is now lovely dingy blue.

Help?

I'm hesitant to put it in with the whites as that uses bleach. I don't know how that would work. Granted the shirt is kind of white, but not really. Would it still be alright?

    Just wear the top, it'll be a momento of your stupidity.

    Dye it a completely new colour. Less of a problem if it goes wrong, and voila, a new top :D

    You could bleach it, but you have to be a bit careful with bleach as it won't always get rid of all the dyes in a fabric. I had a khaki top with olive green stripes on it, bleached it coz i didn't like the colour and it ended up pink and cream !

    You should be able to get a colour run remover. I would think you ought to be able to get it from the supermarket.

    I've just Googled it and Carbona do one.

    I have no idea HOW it works, but it does! It's a lifesaver.
