Dye Transferred in the Wash

I usually do this one item by hand, but this particular day it got washed with delicates. It's a sheer blouse with a crocheted vest in front, it's off-white in color, at least it was. When it came out of the washer, the sheer netting at the bottom half was a light blue and the all over color had a blue hue, the crocheted vest had turned a white bluish. Is there any thing or way I can take it back to its original color without losing its original color?

Here in Australia, Dylon makes a product called Colour Run Remover, just put in wash with affected clothes and it removes all the unwanted dye; brilliant stuff!

In the US you should look for Rit Dyes products, they make a dye remover for natural and synthetic fabrics-check your blouse to find out what it's made with so that you get the right product.

Try washing it by itself with 2 Shout Color Catcher sheets, available in the laundry aisle at the supermarket. The box says 1 sheet, but I have found 2 work better.

Then air dry and repeat if needed. If you dried the blouse in the dryer, the colors may be set. This product has save several items for me. It is worth a try because you probably won't wear the blouse as is.
