I own a HE washing machine. Recently I washed some white cotton pants with some black pants. (on warm/cool) I didn’t think the black clothing would run bit they did. My bad…How do I get my white pants “white” again? They haven’t been dried yet.
Thanks for your question and sorry about the pants. Great that you didn’t dry the pants as that would have made your job harder.
Since it’s a white cotton pants and I’m assuming not a uniform but blotchy dye pattern, I would try the following:
Don’t forget to do a better job of sorting and NEVER wash darks (especially black) with any whites. Almost guaranteed dye bleeding will occur.
Good luck. Let me know how it turns out and if you have any further questions.
