How to Remove the Pink When Red Clothes Dye White Fabrics
You can restore white items that picked up a pink color from red clothing, if they are bleachable, by adding Clorox® Bleach or Clorox® Scented Bleach in the wash.
AddAdd 4 tablespoons (60 ml) of Clorox® Bleach or Clorox® Scented Bleach for every 2 L of water.
SoakSoak for 5 minutes, or up to 1 hour for tough stains.
RinseRinse and air dry.
For best results, wash at 40°C. If in doubt about whether you can use bleach on your item, you can do a quick bleachability test. Make a solution of 2 teaspoons (10 ml) of Clorox® Bleach or Clorox® Scented Bleach and 1/3 cup of water. Apply a drop of this solution on a hidden area of the fabric. Rinse after 5 minutes and dry. If there is no color loss, you can safely use liquid bleach on the item.
