Rit Color Remover

Towels after using Color Remover

I saw this at the store the other day by Rit Color Dyes and the regular detergents. I thought I would give it a go since all of my dishtowels are pink (I washed a little tiny red handtowel with the dishtowels and it wasn't very forgiving). It worked great! You can either put it in your washing machine and let the fabric soak and agitate for 30-60 minutes or in a big stainless steel pot on the stove with hot water. I have a front loading washer so I didn't think the product would work as the water level is very low in these washing machines. I also didn't have a stainless steel pot (it said not to use aluminum or non-stick pots). I just filled my stainless steel kitchen sink with hot water and added a quart of boiling water to make it extra hot. Then I added the Rit Color Remover packet and the towels. I let them sit for about an hour, stirring it all around a couple of times. Then you rinse and wash as regular with detergent. For $1.66 at Walmart (it cost more at the regular grocery store), this is a great find to save clothing from washing accidents.
