Quick, red food colouring on white bra, if I put it on a 50 wash will it go over everything do you reckon?

I can't quite believe I've got space in my brain for this sort of thing! But I got red food colouring on a white bra (it fell out of a cupboard with the lid off and covered me, particularly good day, that) and I need the bra tomorrow as it's my best fitting white one for under white tops. It's not expensive or anything though. I've just tried to get the stain off with cold water and washing up liquid and it didn't shift. Shall I stick it in with a load of fast coloureds? What d'ya reckon? Will it turn ds's cream trews pink? Because he'll never wear them again if so but I need the bra and have no more washing in the house, I can't put on a wash for one bra (if I go ahead and wash this load without the bra). Opinions gratefully received!

i have done this with a white top and blue dye.
i tried all sort then as a last resort, put the top in a bucket of cold water with a slug of bleach, left it for 30 minutes and then on a rinse and spin by itsefl and it came out..

Was just going to ask for an explaination www!!! Bet it looks like you had a nasty accident.

Soak on its own with some colour run remover (Sainsbobs have it on wash powder aisle) or if you have some oxy- type (non-chlorine) bleach, some of that.
I wouldn't risk putting it in the wash with other stuff.

Thank you you two! No, I don't think I'll risk it with cream stuff, was going to type some more stuff then realised this is SO BORING! Thank you for responding
