Rug Coloring

Hello Jennifer, I am in desperate need of your help. I have bought some cotton rugs that were red white and blue. I had put them in the washer and went on my way. My 8 yr old was trying to help, and she threw some other clothing in it also. most of the things she put in was black and navy blue which was no big deal, but MY FAVORITE shirt was in there also which WAS navy blue tan and white stripes, now it is all pink shaded and purple where the red faded on it. Is there anything I can do to fix this that might take the pinkish red tone out without ruining the shirt? Thanks in advance for all your help! PS I got the washer stopped before it finished and tool the rugs out and drained the washer and it hasn’t been dried yet. Sincerely, Lisa in Kentucky

Dear Lisa,
Rit makes a product that takes out dye from laundry mistakes. I saw a whole array of this at Hobby Lobby recently. If you don’t have a close Hobby Lobby, try Wal-Mart or Michaels. I haven’t used these products so I cannot recommend directly. Check the Rit site, they may have more info.
best,
Jennifer
