Red Jeans Bled in the Wash

I washed a load of jeans and two of the pairs of blue jeans had thick white stitching. I had a red pair of jeans in there that bled only onto these two pairs of jeans. How do I get the white seam back to white, it is pink now, without bleaching or damaging the blue jean part? I didn't dry them. Currently they're soaking in the washing machine. Please help. Thanks!

I have had luck with a mixture of a couple tablespoons hydrogen peroxide, a couple tablespoons of dishwasher powder, and a 5 gallon bucket of hot water. Soak several hours or overnight, then wash as usual.

When clothes have colors to run on other items, take your powder dish washer soap, put this into your washer, be sure to run the washer to melt the dish washer powder, then toss in the clothes to remove the color. Works best on the clothes as soon as you take the item out of the washer.
