I washed new black jeans with a green shirt and now has stains all over it. Is there a way to fix it?
Provided you didn't put the item in the dryer, the Rit Color Grabber might work.
Try some regular blue Dawn massaged into the stains, and then soak for an hour in a vinegar and baking soda solution and wash in cold. The vinegar and baking soda is one to 2 cups vinegar in a bucket with half cup baking soda and enough cold water to cover garment.
Hopefully you have not dried your shirt but some remedies may still work even if you have. You may just have to repeat the process more than once.
