Keeping Clothing Dye from Running in the Washer

Is it vinegar that is used in the washer to keep colors from bleeding onto other fabrics?

Unfortunately, using vinegar or salt to 'set' fabric dye isn't always reliable. There are commercially available products, but the best method to prevent dye transfer is to use the correct laundering methods-cold water wash and rinse with similar colours or washing separately are the only truly reliable ways.

The following link has good information and links to further reading:

Plain table salt works too. I never measured it; just poured some in the washer and use the rinse cycle. When finished spinning, fill washer up (small load) again for rinse cycle.

See if the color is gone. If not, do it again with more salt that next time. I used this on a red tee shirt and it worked fine.
