The last resort was RIT color remover.

Unfortunately, I washed some of my whites with a new pair of pants and the dye got all over some of my favorite shirts!

Rit Color Remover contains a mixture of sodium hydrosulfite and sodium carbonate. It often works well to remove unwanted dye run stains, and it can also be used to make lovely designs in fiber art, as well. Be sure to buy enough packages, as you will need four boxes to run one extra-large washing machine load, three for a large load, or two for a medium-sized washing machine load.

Rit Color Remover is gentler to fabric than chlorine bleach (hypochlorite), and, unlike chlorine bleach, it rinses out completely, so there is no need for an additional step to neutralize it. In contrast, if you use chlorine bleach to remove dye, you must neutralize it afterwards with Anti-Chlor, Bleach-Stop, or hydrogen peroxide (never an acid such as vinegar!). Otherwise, the bleach will continue to eat away at the fabric, even after washing, and shorten the life of the garment. This is not an issue with Rit Color Remover, which does not need to be neutralized, only washed out.

There can be no guarantee that any type of dye remover will work. Some dyes simply cannot be discharged or bleached. Also, the underlying original color of the garment may or may not be affected. It is best to use Rit Color Remover to remove dye runs on colored garments only when it is worth risking removing the original color. That said, Rit Color Remover has saved many garments that would otherwise have been ruined.

For dye artists, Rit Color Remover allows 'reverse tie dye', by removing dye to leave light areas on a dark background, and provides mysterious looking and wonderful results in shibori. The famed shibori artist Carter Smith uses the same chemical as that found in Rit Color Remover for his discharge dyeing.

The package also claims that Rit Color Remover can be used on whites to remove stains such as fruit juice, ketchup, tea, and rust. It is safe for all fabrics that can be washed in hot water.

I use this every time I mess up my white clothes by mixing them in the washer with colors. The first couple of times I used this I was very disappointed because it barely removed the color. I tried it several times. Then my roommate suggested instead of using the washing machine method, to try the stove-top method and it works like a charm. This stuff has saved the lives of MANY of my clothes because I am spacey and keep throwing whites in the wrong wash. Most recently it even saved a very expensive custom-tailored white silk blouse that had turned green from washing with a green skirt.

Throw your items in the pot with the hot water and rit and within a few seconds the color is gone. I once had my entire collection of whites ruined by a red skirt that turned them all pink and they all turned back to white. Too bad it hasn't worked for all of you, but for me it has been a miracle product and life-saver and I can only urge you to try it again with the stove-top method. Good luck!

I have used this product many, many times before to dye different fabrics. I always start with the color remover and although I have never tried the stove top method I hear it's the best way. I have always used the washing machine method and it has never failed me. I just wanted to let you know that $7.00 for a 2oz box is way over priced and you can usually pick them up at a chain store for no more than $2.00 a box.

I put in a load of wash with a few whites (100% cotton) mixed in which ended with some of the whites being turned pink and a few lightly colored clothes having red and green spotches. I was kicking myself! I looked online and tried everything--ammonia soak, vinegar, green tea and salt soak etc--nothing worked and the green tea and salt just further "dyed" the whites (as I thought they might but I was desperate!) The last resort was RIT color remover. Here's what I discovered:

1. It's ALOT cheaper at a big box retail store whose name begins with "W." Its under two dollars.
2. You should use TWO boxes per soak if you are working with whites/light colors--might work with vivid colors too but I can't speak to that because I only used it on whites/light colors. I had MUCH better results when I used two boxes.
3. Use the STOVE method for better results. I've read that it works better than when you use in the washer. I've also read that it could hurt your washer. Not sure if that's true but why risk it.
4. If the first try doesn't work, buy more boxes and do another soak. I had to do two soaks before it worked. I couldve even done one more but I was satisfied enough to stop.
5. Two of the shirts had writing/designs printed on the shirt--the RIT did not effect or fade them at all.
6. make sure you read all of the directions carefully because they are very specific--don't skip a step. Don't inhale the powder inadvertantly as you pour it and try not to get it on your skin.

Hope this works for you as well as it did for me--it really is a miracle product. The only downside is that its a little smelly but that's such a minor drawback considering the payoff.

I needed to remove dye from a hemp belt - to turn it from natural "light khaki" to white. I followed the instructions and used the stove - top method. It worked a treat - the colour started to disappear in few minutes and within a half hour I was left with a beautiful natural white hemp belt. A word of warning - make sure the kitchen is well ventillated or turn on the ventillation fan at max power - the fumes are not pleasant. After a hand wash in normal detergent the belt had no after-odor, so it was a complete success.
