I got a small stain of brown hair dye in my peach skirt. Is there anyway to get it out? If I have to bleach it and it goes white how can I dye it back to peach?

Here are some sites that give some suggestions - you may wish to read several before attempting any one thing:

Does anyone know how to remove hair dye stain from clothing? I recently was coloring my hair in the bathroom and the clothes were hanging in there to dry. I have recently had shoulder surgery and can only reach with one hand, so it was quite awkward and foolish of me to do it myself. If anyone has suggestions please let me know.
Ive had similar things happen and most of the time,if its perminant, I can't get the stain out.
But sometimes if its the semi-perminant dye. I have luck with using hand cleaner that men use in garages. I just use it like stain stick and it sometimes works. Good luck!

Soak in a 5 gallon pail. Use hot water. Add 2T each dishwasher powder and hydrogen peroxide. Soak overnight and wash in the morning
I have a feeling that stain is there to stay. You could try soaking it in some diluted Oxiclean. Best wishes!
