I’ve got another washing related question. My teenage daughter dyed some sports socks bright pink (to stop her brothers stealing hers) and you guessed it…..the newly dyed socks went through a load of the boys’ t-shirts. How can you remove dye from shirts without damaging the picture? Unfortunately the shirts were dry before the teenagers told mum!
