To remove dye from white clothing, chlorine bleach works best. To use this method, users should add 1/2 cup of bleach to a gallon of water and soak the clothing for 30 minutes; after the clothes have soaked, they should then be washed as normal. For fabrics that are not white, a dye or color remover is optimal.
While all brands of stain remover work differently, most require that one packet is added to several gallons of water. Users can then place the clothing in the water and let it soak according to the package directions. The clothes should then be rinsed and laundered.
