I have a black and white sweater that I washed with a red tank top and now the white on my sweater is pink. Please help! How do I get it out?

Try washing it by itself with a Shout Color Catcher sheet, which I think is what Beesugarpie is referring to. This is one product that really works. At least it has for me.

There is a product called color out or something to that effect. I can't remember the exact name but it is usually located by the bleaches or color dyes in stores. I know Jo-ann fabrics has it and i have also see it at Walmart and Hyvee grocery. It is supposed to fix the problems you have all described, hope it works, good luck to all!

I have a black and white cow print jacket made out of cotton. I washed it with sweatshirts that I've washed a lot. One was light pink. It faded on the jacket. How do I get the pink out?

Try washing the jacket by itself with a Shout Color Catcher Sheet, which is what suescats was referring to, I think. This is one product that really works well. At least it did for me under similar circumstances. (12/31/2010)

I handwashed a bright multi-colored striped swimsuit with mild liquid soap, and the color from the stripes bled into each other, particularly into the white striping. Can this be removed? I saw where you suggested to use Shout Color Catchers with other items or Brite White, but would this work on a swimsuit?

If all else fails, try machine washing it. I hand washed a red and white striped top and the color bled terribly, but it came out great when I used the washer. Apparently, all the excess red color washed out. Please try all the other hints you get first, though! (06/06/2010)

I hand washed a beige silk-blend sweater that has red and green florets and of course, the red bled onto the sweater. Is Rit Dye Remover good for spot cleaning?

I tried cleaning a food spot from an expensive cotton sweatshirt, which is dark blue with a wide yellow stripe. The spot was on the yellow stripe, which has a dark blue backing.

I washed colored laundry and had a blue towel in with them. Now all my colored laundry has blue spots on them. My children wear these clothes a lot. How can I get the blue dye out of my colored clothes?

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.

I have a blouse that is 100% ramie. The instructions were to machine wash, but I chose to hand wash. In some places the black has run, not all.

How do I take color that bled from fabric sewn onto a towel off the towel, but not take the color out of the material it belongs on?
