Dye Transferred to Colored Clothing

I have a peach color 100% cotton t-shirt. The cloth is stretchable and it's tag asks not to bleach. It had gotten several blue stains over it and I came to know about them after it was dried after the wash. How do I remove these stains?

Saturate the stains with straight rubbing alcohol - then wash as usual. I've used this method several times. It works most of the time, but not always. But it's cheap and won't do any harm. Worth a try...

I splashed myself with wash water while rinsing the dye out of a t shirt my son tie-dyed at camp. I had large dark splotches on a coral colored cotton blouse.


I am very happy to report that the rubbing alcohol treatment worked perfectly.
