How do you remove a dark color that bled through to a lighter color? I had softener show up on a light pair of pants. I tried to use Color Run. The softener did not come out. (Color Run has changed. In addition to taking out colors that run it also lightens the color of the fabric.)

Use a dandruff shampoo and rub it in, wash. Do not dry in dryer. It sets the stains to make it difficult or impossible to undo.

I wear scrubs daily, and noticed for quite a while now that I have spots on them from my liquid fabric softener. Any suggestions to get rid of them, or preventing them in the future for other clothing? I use Downey.

I use Downy Free and Sensitive and have these spots. I haven't reached any conclusions on dryer sheets yet, though I have read several posts by other people that say the sheets can also cause spots. (10/23/2008)
