I bought my husband a new flannelette shirt. I have washed it 3 times and when he wears it the colour still comes off on his neck. Can anyone help? Please. Thanks.

Try soaking the shirt in a salt water solution overnight, then washing it. Mix 1 cup salt with enough warm water to cover the shirt completely. This may help set the color.
The color isn't coming off. That is lint and eventually it will stop.
If the salt doesn't work then try white vinegar. Anytime I buy something new with color I run the sink full of hot tap water and add about 1 cup of vinegar, let it set overnight and rinse it a couple of times with cold water. If the water still shows color I then repeat the hot tap water/ vinegar overnight soak and rinse again. I never have had to go a 3rd time. Hope this helps.
