Removing Dye That Transferred in the Wash

I have a new white cotton shirt that has two black stripes on both sleeves and they bled onto the white. There is a full design on the front as well. I have tried Oxiclean, Clorox Bleach Pen, Stain Stick, and Wisk detergent. I'm not sure what else I can try on those spots. It is very noticeable.

The only thing I can suggest is to dip a Q-tip in bleach and dab at the mis-colored spots, being really careful not to get the bleach on the black fabric. Whenever I wash an item that has more than one color on it, I use a product by Shout called something like Color Catcher. It does work. I tried it for the first time with a shirt that was red with a white insert in the v-neck, and I have had the shirt for several years. (11/30/2010)

I would take this back where it was purchased. This is not supposed to happen. Hopefully you did not use bleach! (12/01/2010)
