Dye Transfer on Corduroy Jacket

I had accidentally washed my cream corduroy jacket with a purple t-shirt. After the wash I figured out that my corduroy jacket were stained with purple spots. How do I get rid of them. I tried soaking it in bleach water but that didn't work. Please help.

Try Rit color remover. It costs around $3 and found it works well.

The makers of Rit dye make a Dye & color remover, I don't think it'll remove the original color from your cream jacket since it's already a light color, just the "fugitive-type" dye that faded on to it. This dye & color remover is sold where they sell Rit Dyes. If this doesn't work, try Hydrogen Peroxide followed by Ammonia then wash in the machine, & if you're ready to throw the jacket away, you can always try Bleach (in the machine) as a last resort. Just make sure the bleach is TOTALLY mixed in with the water before adding your garment!

* You can always call these guys, they sell dyes on the internet & they REALLY know their business when it comes to dyes (& removing them):
