Blue Jean Dye on a White T-shirt

My teenage son washed his favorite 100% white cotton shirt with his new blue jeans in hot water. The shirt turned a light blue. What should I do to make the shirt white again? Please help this single dad.

Diluted Bleach Soak

Use a half cup of bleach to a sink of water. Leave shirt to soak and turn frequently so all is immersed. Do remember that many stains will not come out once it has been placed in the clothes dryer.

Rule of thumb: Sort clothes by colors per load, whites, colors, and darks. Many new red clothing items will bleed onto other clothes, so wash in cold water separately.

Bleach for 100% Cotton

There are dye transfer products available, but with a 100% cotton shirt you can just bleach it with household bleach. Follow the directions on the container. And next time no jeans with whites!

Rit Dye Remover

Get the Rit Dye Remover and run it through the wash. It will come out white. This is usually found with the Rit Dye at any Walmart.
