Bleach Turned White Shirts Pink

I have 6 poly/cotton white shirts that turned pink after applying bleach to yellow staining from sunscreen. What can I do to rescue the situation? I can't believe I've ruined 6 shirts.

Try soaking the shirts overnight in a 5-gallon pail filled with the hottest tap water you have. Add 2T each hydrogen peroxide and powdered dishwashing detergent. Wash as usual the next morning.

There is a chemical reaction between the chlorine and sunscreen. Per thread you are not alone - http://www.styl  pink-suggestions

On recommend there said, try soaking your shirts in bleach for longer.

You could also wear the pink shirts for around the house or as pajamas too if it does not work out.

After internet search I tried 3 different cures, lemon juice, vinegar and washing soda I soaked 3 pink shirts overnight and then washed again none of the treatments made any difference oops. I will try the dish washer powder and keep you posted

I had the same thing, 6 shirts stained pink. Ive rinsed them and soaked them with vanish oxi white for 12 hours. Worked well.

I have always put my whites in a solution of bleach & warm water but today my top has gone pink I do know that it also happens with flash spray with bleach but it's all recently been happening?
