  • Lol, I just washed a blue one this weekend! Luckily it was in my whites and it bleached out. I don't think you can get it out of colors. Try the tide stick thing maybe?

  • This has happned to me before. As far as the colored clothes go, there's not much you can do. BUT you can save your whites. Put them in a load by themselves. Wash in HOT water and bleach (no laundry detergent). Do this twice if you have to (do NOT dry in between washes).

    That worked for me. The colored clothes are now what they use to play in :(

  • Use hairspray. My mom and dad had blue stuck on their dryer and it got on many loads before we figured out the problem. Spray it with hairspray and use a small brush to scrub it out. We used an old toothbrush. It worked great. This works on ink too.
