Dye Bled When Jacket Was Dry Cleaned

I took my daughter's navy blue varsity jacket with white lettering to the dry cleaners. When I got it back, all the white letters and white on the patches were light blue. How do I get the letters and patches back to white?

First, I'd go back to the dry cleaner with the jacket and ask them to undo what they've done (calmly). A reputable cleaner should do that at no charge to you. An outstanding businessperson would even give you back the initial cleaning charge , or if they're unable to repair the bleeding they caused, offer to reimburse you for the cost of someone who can, or a replacement jacket.

If you're getting nowhere with the dry cleaner at all, you might have a small claims court case on your hands. I wouldn't attempt to undo this damage myself or you may create more. If you put the responsibility back on the dry cleaner, you should either have it fixed properly or have a new one in hand.
