went into a blue wash, and came out as a blue shirt with a grubby blue coloured collar, can I turn it back White somehow? And how can I stopped it happening again?

My husband loves expensive blue and White shirts and they drive me mad with worry when I wash them sad

In future put a colour catcher sheet in the wash with them? If it was a new shirt I'd personally be taking it back to the shop for an exchange - presuming that it was the only new item in that wash then it stands to reason that it's the one that has dyed itself if that makes sense!

IME blue shirts with white colours don't run... You shouldn't have put it in a 'blue wash' because they're not darks, the other blues will have run, not the blue/white shirt. Next time your DH buys a shirt like this, wash it with your lights.

And by lights I mean, other work shirts that don't have heavy colour in them. Clothes that have some light colour but you know don't run.

And no I don't think the shirt is now recoverable.

Umm thought it might be for the bin. I normally do a shirt wash but for some reason it ended up with blue things. Oh we'll lesson learnt!

You can buy something called " Colour Run Remover" from the big supermarkets it only removes colours run in the wash and not the colour an item is originally.
