How do I keep purple from bleeding on white? It is a quilt and the purple wants to bleed.
Wash in cold water and use color-catching sheets. You might want to dry-clean the item to make sure it doesn't bleed.
Vinegar! It won't run. Add a half cup to the wash cycle
I would try Color Catcher or Grandma's Secret Spot Remover (usually recommended by Quilting shops).
Both of these can be found at Walmart or Amazon and are easy to use.
Wash with a cup of salt in the water. This is only needed on the initial washing. For safety's sake always throw a couple of Color Catchers in the wash with the quilt. It works!
