Preventing Clothing Dye from Rubbing Onto Skin

I've worn this black knit dress twice. Every time I wear it the dye rubs off, onto nail color, fingers, and skin. Help! It's awful. What can I wash this dress in to prevent this?

Try adding a cup of vinegar to the rinse water and then rinse it again. Vinegar will set some dyes. Good luck.

Table salt will also set some dyes. If vinegar doesn't work. Don't use both at the same time.

Another option is to return the dress to the store or company of your purchase. It is clear that the dress material and/or dye job was not correctly completed.
