Dye from Jeans Transferred to Other Clothing in Wash

I washed new jeans with a silk/cotton sweater, needless to say, there are now stains on the sweater. Any idea on how I can remove them?

Try soaking the silk/cotton sweater in a light mixture of bleach water and when the blue effect is gone, rinse well several times. Or, try using Oxiclean to soak it in again rinsing well. (12/30/2010)

The bleach thing or there's those color remover packets by Rit that they sell at Walmart in the laundry soap isle. I just saw a commercial for these cloths things that you put in the wash to help absorb colors so they don't spread. (12/31/2010)

Try washing the sweater by itself with a Shout Color Catcher sheet, available in the detergent aisle of the supermarket. This is one product that really works. (01/01/2011)
