Take it back, they shouldn't have run if you washed it properly.

guessing the dress your dd was wearing on Sat?

such a shame.

you can buy colour run stuff in tescos that's supposed to work. could be worth a try?

This happened to me last week - I nipped out to Tesco and bought some Dylon colour run remover for 99p - it was fab and removed all the colour instantly.

DH's blinkin red fat face t-shirt will never be going in with the regular washing again.

I don't understand this! If you washed two items that were mixed red and white patterns, then they shouldn't have run into anything else.

If the red was printed on a white item, the red colour should have been fast, to enable the item to be washed. If they ran onto another item (which they shouldn't have)they must have been washed at the wrong temperature or something????

fizzbuzz - i washed the afore mentioned items with a pair of chepao red trousers... and all of the white bits on my red and white items are now pink. i washed at 40 degrees - should have been 30. didn't read labels...never read labels... but i will from now on! was thinkning how lucky it was to have enough items to do a red load [blush ] and sad!

Oooh, you need to read labels.

I teach textiles at A level, the labels are there for a reason and to protect your rights if anything shrinks, runs etc.

You can get that colour remover stuff, but be careful if you are removing it from patterened fabric. It may remove some of the coloured pattern which you don't want removing..........
