White Clothes Are Now Pink


I accidentally had a red shirt in washing machine with all my cotton whites. My underwear, my husbands and favorite white night shirts are now pink. I am soaking in Oxyclean overnight with bleach for colors. Any other idea if the clothes are still pink tomorrow?

Rit makes Color Remover. It comes in a little white box with purple lettering. You can buy it at Walmart. My husband had washed a brand new pair of dark blue jeans with my cream sheets, and I used this stuff. Everything came out. I think they make stuff specifically for whites turned pink. Hope that helps!

I love a product called Iron Out, made specifically for removing rust from clothes. You can find it in the cleaning isle of your grocery or department store.

I swear by this recipe. One half cup of Clorox bleach and one half cup of powdered Cascade in a gallon of warm water. Soak overnight.

Old trusty chlorine bleach works great for 100% cotton whites. You have to be careful and follow the directions, though, because fabric can be weakened if it comes in direct contact with undiluted bleach.

Rit also makes two other products with descriptions like whiteners/brighteners . Be sure to buy Rit "Color Remover" mentioned by princslugi rather than these whiteners/brighteners They are probably not strong enough to get the pink out. I have used the color remover and had good success.

Put the clothes in a basin with your usual detergent. Boil a cut up lemon in about 1 cup of water for a couple of minutes. Add it to the clothes and let them soak. They will come out bright and white.

I am dealing with a 20x30 flag that faded. soaking is out of the question. It will get worse. It has to be done by hand I will try the lemon. Rit color remover will not work, because it will affect the red.

Editor's Note: I recommend Oxiclean rather than the lemon juice, to get the white back to white and keep the red, red.

Try soaking the clothing in cold water and salt. It seemed to help when my red dress with white flowers became a red dress with pink flowers.

Yeah, there is a product in the cleaner isle that is made for that. I think it was Tide. Check it out

Ive read all the comments regarding white items and although there are few that are worth trying, the fact for me remains that White loads turning pink all the time is a rather new problem (5-6 year she). First I need to address that I ALWAYS wash the very few red items that I have by hand. My white loads are ONLY whites. I use Clorox, detergent, Borax (depending on soil level), double rinse....

and there..... pink hue over and over again. I've tried a suggestion of doing the last rinse with a cup of peroxide.... just a little difference. And the weirdest of weird.... ONLY THE FiRST TIME..... only once, like a miracle...... I used OXY CLEAN for whites... amasing results but only once....... so mind buggling.... and even more that I don't seem to find a person with my
the RYE color remover is good only for color rub clothes...
