I have a few clothes (coloured t-shirts and polo shirts) which have turned a different shade of colour due to a small amount of colour from other clothes being transferred to them in the wash.

One example is a t-shirt which was a pale yellow now has a blue tint added which makes the t-shirt look permanently dirty.

How do I restore them?

  • If they are white you could try soaking in bleach (read the label). But that won't restore colours. – Weather Vane Dec 21 '19 at 17:30
  • Welcome! Could you please elaborate a bit - what fabrics and what colors are we talking about? – Stephie Dec 21 '19 at 21:33
  • @Stephie - please see my edit – Chris Rogers Dec 22 '19 at 8:57
  • Hi Chris, Welcome to Lifehacks. Several others have asked the same or very similar questions. Have you searched for their remedies? Your chances don't look good if the shirts have been dried. – Stan Dec 22 '19 at 19:10
