Bleached Beige Jeans Turned Pink

I put new beige color jeans in clean plastic container; added water, added Javex regular liquid bleach, added liquid soap (Arm and Hammer - navy blue in color). The jeans turned light pink almost immediately. I tried a new solution of same bleach twice. The jeans are still light pink, not the slightest of change. Jeans have not yet been put in dryer but were dried on hanger.

You added bleach to the water and then soaked your jeans in them and it sounds like the jeans were not colorfast and faded to a pinkish shade. Don't think there's any changing of the color unless you try to dye them.

I was trying to figure out for a minute why you put bleach on your jeans??? That was the culprit. Actually pink is part of the color of beige. Like said before, nothing you can do except dye them.

I've had bad experience with white garments and dark colored detergents (in this case, it as dark ALL detergent and white jeans). Next time, make sure all the detergent is dissolved before adding the clothing.
