A white blouse got washed with a red one. How do you get the pink out?
By Pat B.
A little bleach in water will do it. Then rinse in vinegar water.
I wouldn't mix OxiClean and bleach, in fact I think there is a warning on the label about it. As long as you didn't throw the now pink blouse into the dryer, you should be able to get the pink out, and restore the blouse to its original white by washing it in the hottest water possible for the fabric; add bleach if the fabric can be bleached-synthetics can't handle bleach, you'll end up with a completely ruined and useless blouse.
There is a product called something like "Colour-Out" that can be used to strip dye from a fabric, check on the Rit (US) website:
Or on the Dyelon (UK) site:
For the actual name of the product. It works great for taking the accidental colour out of fabric.
Try soaking it in hydrogen peroxide. May take several times.
As long as you didn't heat dry it. Just soak in bleach or bleach and Oxyclean. Do it n a bucket with hot water, then let it set till it's white again. May even take a day or two. If you heat dried it, it probably won't come out, but you can try any way. Use a lot of bleach.
Oh yeah, watch for the bleach and Oxyclean they will foam up a lot when mixed. Add a little bit of laundry detergent too.
Washing red and whites together?! Oh man, that's not good! No worries, washing it in some type of bleach cleaner should get it out.
