How to get dye stains out of the white parts of a colored shirt?

Asked by Pinkcottonfluffs (33points) 2 weeks ago from iPhone

I accidentally washed some pants that bleed pink with a shirt that’s navy blue with white patterns, and now it has a pink hue to it. I can’t use standard bleach because it’s not all white. I already dried it before realizing what I’d done and have washed it again since. Does anyone have any tricks to get out, or at least reduce, stains of these types?

Try color safe bleach or Oxi-Clean.
I heard a guy say he always used regular chlorine bleach in the wash but he had to dilute the strength some before putting the clothes in. I would only try this as a last-ditch effort.
