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.

The products works very well. It removed the color without any problem. BUT, I could not wear the clothes after I had removed the color. I had a severe reaction while wearing the clothes from the chemicals left in the clothes. I washed the clothes 4 times and still could wear them because I literally was having trouble breathing when I wore them. So if you have any allergies to chemicals, I would not recommend using this product.

After accidentally washing a red shirt with my whites, I ended up with pink everything! My brand new white shorts and socks, along with several other items were a lovely shade of pink. I had never tried (or heard of) Rit Color Remover, but after searching for a solution, I found this product. I read many reviews to make sure I knew what I was getting myself into. I used the stove top method since it had better reviews, and because I only had a few items. As you can see in the pictures, everything came out perfectly white. After I removed my clothes from the pot, I added my battenburg lace tablecloth that had a stubborn tea stain. It came out beautifully white as well. I couldn't be happier with the results!

This is a great product. I have used it for years, dozens of times. It works well with really hot tap water in the kitchen sink. But here it's overpriced. No way a single box should cost almost $7.

My 100% cotton curtains had yellowed. I tried bleach and other remedies I found on the internet. Nothing worked until I tried the Rit color remover. I let the curtains soak a little after they had agitated and they are as white as they were brand new.

used the stove top method hoping to remove about 30% of red dye. not only didn't remove but also spread the dye to other non-affected areas. bummer!

found another product named synthrapol. it worked nicely, removing the dye without affecting another color
