Please help! Can't believe I had a color run!
I washed a load of light colors, which was a combo of clothing that had color and white in it.
Stupidly didn't notice/remember that a new pair of my daughter's socks (commercially sold tye-dyed pink and white) were in the sorted pile and put the entire load in on a regular warm wash.
Now, panties, pj's, tshirts, etc are pink where the white was, and clothing that was touching the socks is VERY pink, even on previously colored areas.
I could try bleaching it all, but I think there must be a better way.
My daughter's favorite tshirt (all-over bright yellow with a large smiley face in small golden studs all over the front) has splotches of pink on the bottom that shows through even though I had turned it inside-out to protect the little sequins. I can't find another shirt like it, and am afraid of destroying it with bleach.
I've rewashed, on hot, using a large scoop of oxy-clean with zero result.
Now I'm soaking all the affected clothing in a mixture of water, lots of baking soda and about a cup of vinegar.
I've done a search for "color run" but have not found a thread discussing this.
Can anyone help? (front loader)
