What can I do about it? They're months old, have been washed at least 8 times and still I get blue hands throughout the day! It's a good thing my car seat is black - otherwise it'd be blue (if you know what I mean)!

No advice I'm afraid. I had this too. Tried cold wash,hot wash,colour catcher & gave up & binned them. The colour was on my cream carpet sad
Shame,they were a nice fit.

You could try soaking them in a salt solution to 'fix' the dye.

Get a big-ish bucket, about 500g of salt and half fill the bucket with cold water. Lower your jeans in carefully, making sure there's no air trapped. Leave for at least 24 hours.

Rinse well and give them a separate wash.
