Dye Buildup Inside Washer

I noticed I have dark blue dye building up in the tub of my dryer. It doesn't rub off on my clothes but maybe it will within time. I tried using nail polish remover and about fumigated myself. I felt ill and weird for several days. Does anyone have an idea?

It is from something you washed that leaked dye-such as new jeans or towels that were blue.

It will fade away on its own in time. Even majic marker will go away on its own after a few months.

Never use nail polish remover or any solevent in your dryer or anything that heats up. It can rub off on clothes, cause a fire and cause sickness.
