Black Dye Transfer on White Clothing

I have just washed all my white holiday clothes with a black sock. Now my clothes are bluish. I go on holiday in a few days. What can I do to make my clothes white again?

I did the same thing! I tried soaking in white vinegar. Not very successful on cotton. So, the "last resort' was to use bleach in the washer. Did not have the best white even then, but I continued a couple more times and I now have a nice bright white. Good luck! Have a great Holiday!

Vinegar might set the bluish stain even more (because vinegar is what's used to help 'set' color after dyeing) so I am going to suggest OxiClean or non chlorine bleach.
