Is it possible to bring back the color to a shirt or jeans or something. I have this dress shirt that i love but my stupid flatmates last year washed it in hot water and it leaked all the color. Is it possible to some how bring the color back?


I doubt it but i was wondering?

Throw in wash with clothes you want dyed that colour.
Throw in wash with agent that sets colour.
Hang to dry.

Get killed by mummy-deep for dying the inside of her white washing machine the colour of your hat.

(I forgot to add that you should do it in a stainless washer and make sure you only dark loads in it for about 3 washes. Or go to a laundry place and live with the guilt of ruining someone else's wash.)

With just a hat you could do it in a bucket.

PASS ME A BUCKET!

(but eeet's only waffer theeen!)

bit confused on the 80s rehashing comment. I am assuming you are referring to faded jeans

Or nothing?

it was called RIT

and it was just a powder box (they did have liquid)
I just poured it in the wash with hot water...according to instructions. I didn't have to add anything to it, but i did have to put them through 2 rinse cycles alone to ensure they wouldn't leak. They still look good and that was over a year ago.

not too shabby.

Also with the kind you used did it wreck your laundry machine

I got mine at Zellers and it was cheap. Like..$5 or something retarded.

I did it at the apt. I lived at soooo....but after the 1st wash, yup....black. But after washing them in a rinse cycle twice, the machine looked ok.
I was impressed to be honest. And the jeans still look OK.

I think he only read the title of your post but not the content. B/c it appears as if he thought you were complaining that current fashion isn't colourful enough- that's what i thought when i read the thread title...but you actually meant that you LITERALLY wanted to bring the colour back to clothes...hence teh 80's comment b/c that is what is instyle ATM.
