Put on latex gloves, remove the garment from the bucket and inspect it. If the fabric is white and some dye remains visible, soak the garment in a gallon of water mixed with 1/4 cup chlorine bleach. Bleach the fabric for no more than 15 minutes. If the garment is not white, skip this step.
Remove your gloves, and launder the garment according to the directions on its care label. If the overnight oxygen bleach treatment did not remove all of the dye from a nonwhite garment, add a scoop of oxygen bleach to the wash cycle.
