Hi: Recently I washed quilt that had red fabric in it. I thought that I had initially prewashed out all the excess dye but it ran anyway. Is there any way that I can get the pink color out of the white fabric.. Thanks. Grammie
Try this. Treat bleed areas with Stain Stick. Wash with Synthrapol (available from www.dharmatrading.com). Treat with Retayne (also from dharma). This should set the dye, especially if it was commercially prepared. If you dyed it yourself, all you need to do is wash the piece in Synthrapol each time. Use only a very little bit, this stuff is concentrated.
