I washed some white clothing with my girlfriends red dress, how do I remove the pink colouration from the clothing without destroying the other colours on my shirt?

Try washing it again as usual, but add a cup of white vinegar to the wash water. I'm not sure if this will remove your red bleeding, but it will work in the future if you use this method to wash any item that is at risk of bleeding.
What worked for me was soaking the item in cold water with only Clorox bleach for colors. Wring it out and let it sit for a while before washing. After I took it out, I had actually forgot about the item until the next day--but the stain was gone. (01/11/2007)
