Removing Dye Transfer on Colored Clothing

I washed my husband's blue shorts with a new red shirt of his, in cold water. The blue shorts which have been washed once before bled into the red shirt. The red shirt now has blue spots on it. How can I remove this mess?

Removing Dye Transfer on Colored Clothing

Since it is spotted instead of completely one solid dye gaffe, probably nothing will get it all the same color, ever. Your best shot: To find the clothing dye in your nearest grocer or craft store. Wal-Mart carries their clothing dye next to their laundry detergent. In amongst their laundry dye is a dye removal package. Use that first. If the resulting color is not pleasing, but uniform (it will probably be a uniform pink), then re-dye it the red color. Problem solved.

If it is not uniform, then re-dye it a blue color. If this looks more uniform, either leave it this purple tone or dye it yet again with a red dye. This should end up a tolerable color of purple-ish red. At this point, if nothing seemed to work, dye it black. Repetitively. The first should work. (06/15/2009)
