If your quilt has T-shirts you don’t trust to be 100% color fast, we recommend you wash your quilt with the Shout Color Catchers.
If you notice after the first wash that the dye is bleeding (the Color Catchers and the white T-shirts are the color of that one suspect T-shirt) don’t panic!
Wash the quilt right away again with more Color Catchers. Don’t let it dry. Keep it in the washing machine. If the bleeding is bad, it may take two or three additional washes. But by keeping it wet and using the Color Catchers, you should be able to get the excess dye out.
We actually tried this on a quilt. We purposely did not the set the dye on a red backing. When we washed the quilt, the backing fabric did bleed. Everywhere. The whole quilt was pink!
After 4 washes with the Color Catchers, the white T-shirts were back to white.
This principle can also be applied to the red socks in the white laundry load syndrome! No more pink underwear!
