Red Color Bled On White Lace?

Twenty-five years ago, I made a Christmas tree skirt with green/red plaid taffeta and red twill on other side, with expensive delicate white lace. I over watered the tree this year and the skirt got wet. The red twill bled onto the white lace. How do I get the red dye out of the white lace. I have used Oxyclean with peroxide so far. Waiting a little while before rinsing. Any other suggestions?

You can try Rit Dye/Color Remover. Take a look at this site: www.ritdye.com/.../
Follow the Rit instructions EXCEPT, only dip the lace part with the color that bled onto the lace, NOT the whole thing. Good luck.

It would be a lot of work, but you could also take the skirt apart, bleach the lace, then put the skirt back together.

I would contact Rit dye company before trying any of their products to see if they can tell you if you can use any of their color removers as their products have to be done a certain way and are only meant for certain fabrics and your lace material may not be one of them.

If your lace is polyester or a mix of polyester and ?? it may be difficult to remove this bleed stain.

I have had similar incidents and finally had to settle for a light red on the trim but hopefully someone will have better ideas.
Good luck.

What is the lace material? The suggestions depend on what the material is.
