  • You can find bleach that is safe for colors, and you can get detergent that brightens colors and whitens whites. I'm not sure of brands, though. Good luck!

  • I use clorox bleach pen! It takes it right out as you put it on. I like it because you only treat the one area and then just rinse it befor u wash.

  • I use a product called Iron Out. You can find it at most grocery stores or places like Target or Wal-Mart. Follow the instructions for laundry and it works really well. It even works to get the pink color out of whites that have been washed with reds!

  • Borax - I use it to whiten whites and help get the dirt out of jeans. It's great and super cheap.
