Ask the Laundress
I just washed and dried two new Ralph Lauren Polo shirts that I thought were okay to wash together. One was an orange and the other a light purple. Now the orange is stained only on banded collar and sleeves. Did I just ruin the shirt or can you offer suggestions?
My best recommendation would be to apply the Stain Solution directly to stained areas and then make a bath with tepid water and allow to soak. If treating cotton, you can use hot water. You may need to repeat the pretreating and soaking process, as dye transfer can be stubborn. Once you are satisfied with the removal you can then launder as normal.
I’ve linked below our stain removal recipe.
