    I couold kick myself!!

    I have spent all morning sorting out the baby's clothes and decided to wash everything today so I can hang it out.

    I don't know the sex so everything is white/cream.

    I've just walked passed the washing machine and there is a hideous bright red bib spinning round with everything. It is to ONLY piece of coloured item the baby has!! I must have scooped it up with everything else!

    I can't believe how much stuff is possibley ruined!!!!

    Agggrrrhhh!!!!

    Can you not stop the washing machine and drain it? and try to rescue them?

    You could just get a colour run remover, or soak the stuff in a bleach/water solution if they are ruined and the colour run remover doesn't work

    Keep it wet. Stick it in water if you need to. Go get some colour run remover and follow the instructions.

    In my experience it works a treat if you catch it early enough and make sure the clothes don't dry. Don't be tempted to bleach as it will only turn the stuff yellow!!

    Oops!

    Altho I'm guilty of doing this too... I washed all the deep pink stuff with the cream stuff, not giving a second thought that it might run! Luckily, it didn't.

    If it does run, keep your fingers crossed it's a girl :rofl:

    I haven't had my stuff go yellow?:dohh: maybe you left it in too long or something.

    Glad that it didn't run, that would have cost a bomb to replace most likely.

    Yeah you can get dye remover. Also for the future they make "color catchers" that you put in with your clothes so that if anything runs this little sheet soaks it up. I wash lights and darks together all the time with these things!!
