I managed to forget removing a leather belt from my laundry. That would have been OK if i only washed it, but I put it into a dryer as well.
Not only did this destroy the belt completely, but pretty much all the leather dye from the belt was let loose, wrecking havoc on all my favorite clothes. The clothes are not entirely covered in dye, but the spots where the belt touched them have a good, strong amount of the color printed on them.
The white clothes, which were obviously hit the hardest, I will probably just bleach.
However, my colored clothes were hit as well. Luckily, there's just a few stains on those, so spot-cleaning is a possibility.
What are my options? I haven't tried re-washing these clothes yet. Can I hope the color disappears after several washing cycles, or is this completely hopeless?
