    OK, I'm 51 years old and have never had this happen before! Probably comes from being single so long and not having kiddos LOL

    I had a few hand towels, 2 tee shirts and 1 pair of socks and somehow a red pillowcase was hiding in there. DH says he will wear the pink tee in honor of breast cancer, LOL I could just throw out the socks and towels, but I have to at least try to get it out. It's bugging me that I did this!

    Will the Shout color catcher help at this point? I didn't have any on hand but do now. When I took them out of the washer, I hung them to dry, didn't put them in the dryer.

    Oh No LOL Been there and done that too :oops:
    I would think the color catcher and some bleach/dry bleach should take it out since it didn't go through the dryer :wink:

    How about soaking them in some luke warm water with liquid bleach and soaking for a while before washing again. That has worked for me before. I personally think it is too late for the color catcher because the shirt already caught it all. Sorry!

    Pink t-shirts is one thing, but I once worked with a man who had done his own laundry and had turned an expensive pair of blue jeans pink(very manly) he continued to wear them since he had done it himself I am sure it would have been a different story if his wife had made the error
