Jeans Bled onto Khakis?

I washed some of my khaki joggers with some jeans. The jeans bled on to them and now they have blue streaks on them and they got darker. How do I fix them?

What kind of material are your khaki joggers? Be sure you do not use anything that is not intended for that material. Check label and also check out any solution before you try to see if it is safe for that material.

  • Usually, vinegar and baking soda are safe for any type of material.
  • If buying a product to remove the jean color, be sure to not buy Color Grabber but buy Color Remover as they are intended for 2 different uses.
  • Color Grabber and Color Catcher are to use in your first wash to keep colors from "bleeding" onto other clothes (like your jeans just did to your joggers) but it is not intended to remove color run (after the wash has bled/run onto other clothes).
  • Color Run Remover is intended to use for just what happened to your jeans/joggers. Be sure to read what each is to be used for.

  • Some people have had success removing color run by using one of the Color Catcher products in the next wash so you can try this if the first Color Run does not work or is not supposed to be used with your material/colors.

    Be sure to read all directions before you try using any product.
  • I never recommend using chlorine bleach because it is damaging to any fabric but many people use it with white cotton (never synthetic material).
  • You can also try a mild color safe bleach solution but be sure to read instructions.
  • Here is one web site with care solutions. They may recommend using bleach but I would tend to ignore this advice.

I had luck with a cotton/poly blend sweater that had the same issue by leaving it sit overnight in a clean bucket of cold water with 3 quarts of water and 2 cups white vinegar...then wash normally. LINE DRY...NOT DRY IN THE DRYER AGAIN UNTIL THE STAINS ARE GONE.

If it does not work the first time, repeat but this time add 2 tablespoons of baking soda to the mix. It will fizz up. But that is OK.

Sometimes it takes several treatments.

Hope you have success like I did.
