DH dyed our dipes blue!
 
Well at least it's not pink, and he's the one who did the wash so I can't complain too much, but all our AIO and inserts are blue! I'm trying to figure out what caused it- the only thing I can think is our Green Line cover that was dark blue but I've washed it many times without issue so I don't know.

And I should know this, but is there anything I can do other than bleaching to get the blue out? Or is bleach my only option?

I just had this happen! It was because a brand new pair of jeans got thrown in with the dipes. It turned all the mf inserts a bluish hue. I just kept wsshing them and they eventually all went white again! It didn't die any of the covers though. Weird. I would have bleached if I had to. But, if they have been dried, it might set the stain so if you haven't already, don't until u wash a few more times.

Would Oxyclean do it?

Dawn? And then a soak in Oxi and then bleach. That's the order I'd use. :)

I can tell you what NOT to do. Don't get impatient and soak natural fibers in straight bleach. That doesn't end well! :blush:
