Laundry Blues or Reds!

Just over a week before Christmas, and I’m glum.


 I’ve been slowly tinkering around with things around the home, adding some festive decoration here and there, one of which was the red and white blanket you can see here.


I’ve had it for a few years; it’s been laundered before no problem.
This week, I put it in the washing machine, and this happened.


I know it’s horrid; I can barely look at it.

I just don’t understand, it’s been laundered before, nothing happened, but this time, a bunch of tea towels are now a horrendous pink.

I looked up ways to rectify it, tried washing it again in hot water, then tried a colour catcher, I even tried the old ‘sitting on the floor in front of the washing machine, staring at it as it goes round and round’. Nothing works!

I almost just put it in the recycling bin.

Does anyone have any tips on how to fix it?
Or perhaps know where I could buy another one, took me ages to find this one!

I'm off to continue my ‘snow watch’ we are meant to get 0.05cm of snow and I want see it before it all goes!

  1. Oh poor you! How very upsetting. I have had some success with a powder called Colour Run Remover which you find in the same aisle as washing powders and fabric conditioners, but that looks a pretty bad case. Also I think maybe the second wash in hot water might have set the colour, but I don't know. I've also heard about people getting rid of bleeding by soaking the item overnight in Oxiclean. Good luck - and Happy Christmas!

  4. Oh dear, at first I didn't think it looked too bad until I saw the "Before." The "Before" was beautiful! You know, maybe it's time to treat yourself to a new one and save the old one in your fabric pile. Did you get any answers as to how to restore it?!
