    In my fuzzy daze of illness i put a load of washing in the washing machine with intention of putting on and sorting out today.

    so i wacked in some arial colour wash on 40 and have just taken it all out to reveal my Oh's shirts are all pink. not even just a hint, full on pink, thanks to our bright red hand towel that somehow got in there. Hes not here right now (thankgod) but all his clothes are very expensive.. iv pinked 4 shirts, 3 lots of socks, 2 pairs of boxers and a vest. I can garentee about £300 worth. Iv just put the affected items back in the wash on a light wash on thier own to see if i can salvage it but i dont know what to do?


    help!

    I think you can buy something to help remove any colour runs, maybe someone else can confirm?

    Don't worry, I've done this before, yes you can buy colour run it does work.

    I'd tell OH only when you need to, why worry him now:rolleyes:

    These things happen hun - it's not life-threatening, no-one got hurt and as someone else has said you can get some colour-run which should help! I'd fess up - that's just me though - and try to rectify it as best you can! Pink is the new white if all else fails xxx

    the colour run remove stuff does work - I had to put them through twice though but it did work! I now always add a colour catcher to every white wash just in case I do something similar again!

    Yes the colour run stuff is very good, but if all else fails, then perhaps you could dye the items another male friendly colour? x

    I'm with Julie on this one. Colour run is relly good but the catcher sheets are worth their weight in gold.

    good luck honey - ive had a brand new white top dyed a horrid grey colour by new denims!!! gutted.

    i used a dylon one - they are in the supermarket by the colour catchers etc....hope it works - mine still had a tinge of the 'off white' look to it - like a old bra (haha!)

    Least pink is a fab colour - xxx
