I have towels that are mint green and when I washed them with like colors they bleed onto the other clothing and continue to bleed. How do I repair the other clothing and how do I stop the towels from bleeding?

I dye wool and when I want to set the color, I use white vinegar or citric acid. If you really want to keep these towels, I would wash them separately in a very hot tub of water with 1 cup of white vinegar. Let the towels soak about 30 minutes. Wash as usual. Hope this sets the excess dye in the towels. (07/20/2010)
