I tried to tie dye a really nice shirt, but it looks horrible! How do I get it out? Please help.

A box of Rit Color Remover might be a solution for you. I have used it to take color out of a sheet that came out of the washer all blotchy for some unknown reason.
How do I remove blue syain from white cotton top
My son's new black with a red over wash jeans were washed with my blue jeans and shorts now all have a pink tinge to them. I re-washed them with cold water and they are all still pink. If I boil them with the bleach added as I read here will they all become white? How can I get my blue jeans back to their faded old blue?
How do you get a spot of black hair dye off a rain coat?
I was tie dyeing and I didn't realize I was wearing one of my favorite bright pink shirts. I quickly changed the shirt and ran cold water on it, but there are still blue dots of dye on it. The shirt is 100% cotton and all pink with a design pocket on the front and design on most of the back.
My kids recently tie dyed some clothes at school and got unwanted dye on their regular clothes. How do I safely remove it?
I don't think you can. You can use rit dye remover, but it will also remove the dye that was already in the clothing.

I have just washed my son's new school t-shirt which is yellow with my normal colours (none of which run) and for some reason when I took it out of the machine it had blue dye on it and now it looks a "dirty" yellow colour. Any tips on how to get it back to it's original colour would be appreciated.

Get Rit Dye color remover and follow the pkg directions. It should come out. Good luck.
How do I prevent or remove dye that is running on my garments? I put like colors together on cold and have used every type of detergent and my clothes still come out with spots. They look like grease spills and I know they aren't. They even appear on the back of a tee shirt sometimes. Help.

Colors bleeding onto garments stain the entire garment or they stain the area where they sit for a length of time such as if you leave things in the washer for some time before putting them into the dryer. I suspect that you have some other sort of thing going on; if they look like grease spots, I would think they might very well be grease spots. For that, I find that any good stain remover for grease, such as Shout, works; although the best thing I have found is an Orange peel cleaner.
If it is grease of some sort you can put dish soap on the spot and let it sit for like 20 minutes then wash like normal and as long as the spot didn't set in for too long or get dried it should come right out.

RIT, available in grocery stores, etc. sell a product that gets color off of clothes.
The product you want is "Color Out" and it is sold in the area with fabric dyes. Works great.

I had a bright/light yellow tank and washed it with colors, but after washing it, my tank was grey toned. How can I fix this?
Been there try washing the tank top in a bucket or sink with a bit of Woolite and oxy wash powder in warm water then hang to dry. Hope my tip helps - Maria
How do you remove dye from black Levi jeans which has discolored a white blouse?
By Judith G.
Carbona makes a product called "color run remover" It should be in the section with the dye. Also there is a color grabber cloth that you put in the washer with the garment. I can't remember what it's called, but it's in the laundry section of the store. If either of these don't work, you could try appliques or any kind of bling to cover the spots.
I've got a black jacket with a white fur hood. When I've washed it the black dye made the white fur hood grey. Any ideas how I can get the hood back to its right colour?

I know that there is a product now, that works in the washing machine. I know that we may be reversing what happened, but it is worth a try. Of course I do not have the name. I watched a commercial about it and I know it works. It looks like a fabric conditioner dryer sheet. I found it at the grocery store in the laundry soap isle. If you do not read a better idea, and find this product, you could try it by rewashing them. It is a great product for those wash loads that you need to have done faster, like the night before school. Hope you get help. Lois
