The white shirt was dyed blue in the washing machine: how to fix it?

November 16, 2019 by mark wahlbarg  

Washing colored clothes with light clothes have the risk of discoloration of clothes. Darker inks can fade and stain light clothes, leaving an unpleasant dye throughout the shirt. However, not all hopes are lost. There are some methods by Laundry Pick up service that can remove the blue dye and rescue the white shirt.

Step 1:

Fill the sink with warm water. Add 1/4 cup of strong liquid detergent. Mix the water with the detergent with your hands. Dip the shirt in the water. Shake the water and the shirt imitating the movement of the washing machine for a few seconds.

Step 2:

Empty the water from the sink and rinse the laundry detergent with cold water. Fill the sink with cold water and pour 1/2 cup of color-proof bleach. Dip the shirt in the mixture and let it stand for 30 minutes.

Step 3:

Remove the shirt and let the water run from the sink. If the blue tincture on the white shirt is still visible, fill the sink with warm water and add 1/2 cup of bleach with bleach. Dip the white shirt in the mixture and let it sit for 15 minutes. Remove the water from the sink and rinse the shirt with cold water.

Step 4:

Examine your white shirt. If the blue dye is still visible, do not continue soaking it with bleach with chlorine, because it will weaken the tissue. You'll have to replace the item.
