Dye Transferred in the Wash

A few of my husband's tall white socks and white under tees were accidentally mixed in with a load of denim. This load contained at least 4 pairs of new dark-wash jeans. He is embarrassed at work for people to see them. They are brand new, so I cannot just trash them. I have tried bleaching the dickens out of them a few times in a few loads of whites. So far- no luck :(

Well, in our house those would become my t-shirts and socks. Keep washing them with the whites and bleach-and line dry them in the sun. It will take a few times, but they will lighten up. You can also speed up the process by using Rite dye remover. Don't use the dryer-heat sets dyes.
