I have always heard that dye on satin shoes could be bleached out. I did try it on dark green once without much luck,as it spotted.But by the color being light pink I'd say the bleach technique would work. Good luck. (09/27/2005)
Have you tried to dip or paint them using a strong tea solution? You might not need to take out the pink at all. (09/28/2005)
I used to work for Payless Shoesource and they sent off for their dyed shoes. Maybe they'd have tips. If not, try a dry cleaners, seamstress, or even a high school home ec teacher. (09/28/2005)
I dye wedding shoes in my store where we sell all "dyeable" shoes. When I make a mistake in a color, I just bleach it out. I use a mixture of half water to half bleach. let it sit on the color for 5 min. then rinse it off under the faucet quickly. Pat it a little dry, then neutralize the bleach by applying white vinegar to the shoe.
Satin shoes can only be stripped of dye if they are meant to be dyed. I mean, if the fabric was originally white. Fabric that was woven as a colored fabric won't strip well, if at all. If the fabric was originally white, no problem. If not, shoes can still be died if you are going to a much darker color. Keep the original color in mind to go darker as we all know how two colors
combine to make a third. Then follow Carol's instructions (09/20/2006)
