I have a red sweater with white cuffs and collar. I followed the directions to wash in cold water, but the red still faded onto the white cuffs and collar. I tried rewashing, but they are still pink. How can I remove the pink without bleaching the red sweater, too?

Two methods of treating brand new multi-colored clothing to prevent bleeding are:
Repeat steps 2 and 3 about 4 or 5 times; then let the washer complete it's cycle. The colors will be "set".
I used this method on my daughter's cheerleader outfits for 12 years (yes, she started out as a "mascot" and went on through graduation). I also use this on my expensive multi-colored clothing (washable of course). (02/10/2010)
