I tried Oxy-Clean, Color-Safe Bleach and neither did much. But when I took a lemon, cut it into wedges and rubbed them against the colored areas, they became lighter. Plus, lemon juice is better for the environment.
I suggest to bleach the cotton items. You may try to add some bleach in the wash with the other items, not as strong as the cotton items. Hope this helps, good luck.
I buy Shout Color Catcher sheets and use them whenever I am washing something for the first time or red, yellow, green items that tend to fade. I would try putting one of them in with the clothing and also spray some Shout on the blue spots. Good luck.
