How to Fix White Clothing Dyed Blue

December 28, 2010

A laundry basket full of clothes.I've just accidentally washed new white tops (which contain slight splashes of color design) with a blue skirt. Now the main body of both white tops is pale blue. What can I do?

Homemade Dye Remover

My Mom has been using this recipe for years to fix this problem. Mix 1/2 cup bleach and 1/2 cup powdered Cascade in a 2-gallon bucket of warm water. Mix until the Cascade is dissolved and soak item for about 2 hours Then wash the item in cold water.

I have dyed an item of clothing from white to blue (through another item bleeding in the wash). Is there any way to take this color back out, or am I now stuck with a blue top? The item is made of cotton and I have left it to soak in normal water.

Go to the store and buy RIT dye out or dye remover. Works great. Follow instructors. Water must be hot.

I washed a blue shirt with a white shirt, and the white one came out with blue blotches. How can I get it clean?
