Removing Color Transfer Stains

I stored coats for the winter. My blue coat faded on a white down coat that has a black lining. Any ideas on how to remove the blue off the white exterior, without bleaching the inside linings which are black? I wanted to try bleach, but fear if I soak it in bleach, the black lining might either fade or bleed to the outside on the white coat. Any and all suggestions welcome and greatly appreciated. The coat is new.

How do you remove stains from clothes that bled in the washer and then were dried?

By Gail from Houghton Lake, MI

Answers:

Removing Color Transfer Stains

Dye transfer is caused when unstable dye colors "bleed" from one fabric to another. Their removal is often difficult. To minimize problem, sort loads by color, and always remove clothes from washer as soon as rinse cycle is complete. Re-launder affected items right away with detergent and Clorox liquid bleach. If color remains (on all-white fabrics only) use a packaged color remover or stripper sold under the "Rit" label. (12/29/2009)

We have had good luck using Carbona to remove color runs. Good luck! (02/10/2009)
