Washing woes

Help! I’ve done a silly thing and put something in a dark wash that shouldn’t have gone in! It’s my work shirt and it has some cotton trims which should be white but have gone blue - any ideas on how to fix please?! I’ve rewashed it but it is no better, oh dear. blush

You can buy a product that is supposed to cure your problem, think it’s called ‘dygone’ or something similar. Best of luck!,

Been shopping and found some Dr Beckmann Colour Run Remover. Unfortunately it hasn’t! Currently trying a second box sad

Not much use now but I use those sheets that go in the washer to prevent runs. They often come out a very funny colour so I presume they work.

I think those sachets to remove runs only work immediately after.
