    Unhappy Help!!! I've washed a red shirt with some light things and it's run...

    I'm so grumpy right now. I washed an OLD red shirt that has been washed a gazillion times and never run today, and lo and behold, it has run everywhere.

    So therefore my question - a pure white shirt of mine has been ruined - does anyone know if I can bleach it back? Fortunately the other things that are now pink are either old or insignificant, but I'm really annoyed about this shirt. It's cotton. Anyone have any clue about bleaching? Does it work? Is it even possible?

    TIA

    got any Selley's Mould remover?

    I used that on a blanket recently to see if it could save the multitude of baby things I had ruined.
    It bleached it like CRAZY.

    Maybe give that a go. It certainly worked!!

    there's a product you can get made by Dylon called 'run remover', there's even one made just for whites. It works soooo well on colour runs!

    I'm a lazy washer and have nearly ruined so many things 'cos I chuck it all in together! .. this stuff has saved so many of our clothes!

    Really? I know there is a similar thing in the laundry aisle called 'Run Away'.

    I'm being serious, just this once.

    But I don't know how effective it would be once your shirt is dry, so don't let it dry until you have figured out what you plan on doing for it.

    Damn I wish I had looked into these products earlier, about 2 weeks ago I did the same thing, ruined 5 of my DD's outfits because stupid me put a singlet in the wash of mine that I didn't realise hadn't been worn before .

    I threw them all out in frustration! I have kept about 5 others that have little blue sploshes which aren't too obvious.

    Yep use RUN AWAY, its a sachet in the laundry powder section, usually around where the dylon dyes are and stuff, in my supermarkets its usually up high and i can never find it , but its a white sachet with blue writing about $3.00, works a treat.

    Dylon works brilliantly!!!

    I did the same thing recently with all DDs beautiful white clothes, and a black jumper! Dylon fixed it perfectly! Swear by this stuff!

    Good luck!
