Removing Dye Transfer from Jeans - view of the outside of the jeansI tie dyed a shirt and had it (still wet) sitting in a tied up bag near some of my clothes. Today I went to grab my favorite pair of jeans and saw that the bag with the shirt in it was ripped. The dye leaked onto my jeans and (it's a thrifted pair so I can't go buy it again) and I'm like devastated!

I immediately grabbed the jeans (the dye was dry) and soaked the leg of the jeans in hot water and laundry detergent, as well as baking soda. Some of the dye came out, but there is obviously still some dye. In the 1st picture is the wet jeans from the outside and the 2and picture is the wet jeans inside out. The jeans were inside out when the dye leaked onto them.

I don't know what to do and if the dye doesn't come out I'll be devastated. We did have Shout stain remover, but we ran out and I don't know if bleach will remove the jean color too. We don't have rubbing alcohol either. Can you help me?

Normally you soak you clothes in cold water and not hot water. You make your solution and allow the clothes to sit in the solution for 8 hours. If you have a nonclorine bleach you can dilute this in some water and try a little on the stain to. Just do not allo this to sit on the stain a long time.

Rub it in and wash it out. You can do it again if all the stain is not out. You can also mix some dishwashing liquid with some vinegar and allow the leg to soak in this for up to 8 hours or just rub this on the spot.

definitely do not use bleach!

try the vinegar and the cold water over and over again until the stain finally goes away. It can after some time.
