  • are there any ink pens in the pockets of the clothes? that's probably where you're getting the stains from

  • Blue fabric softener will also leave stains. Be sure that the washer is full of water before fabric softener goes in. And if it isn't the fabric softener it could be blue detergent. Some detergents say to fill the tub with water, put the detergent in, then add the clothes- this way the clothes are never exposed to the full strength of the detergent.

  • Be sure to separate your clothes by colors. I actually separate my darks by regular darks (blues & greens), blacks, and reds. My washer has a holder for the liquid fabric softener, but I always do an extra rinse and spin when a load is done to be sure the softener has been washed off.
    Also, be sure to wash any new clothes separately for the first time in case they bleed.
