Fixing Dye Transfer on a Print Shirt

I have a shirt with a huge print and after going through the laundry, the white parts of the print turned green. Does anyone know how I can remove this and not ruin the print of the shirt? Thanks.

Color run can usually be corrected but is more difficult if the garment has been dried.

Step 1
First - check the material content of your shirt to be sure whatever method you try will be suitable for that material.

Step 2
Usually color run can be corrected with a soaking of Clorox Alternative bleach or all color Clorox (not regular Clorox bleach).

Step 3
You may prefer to use one of the color run products that are made for this problem.

Step 4
There are several to choose from and most can be found at big box stores, craft stores or on line (Amazon, Walmart, eBay).
