My Diapers have all been dyed blue - FREAKING OUT - Please help.

I accidentally tossed a new blue washcloth in with my diapers. They are all now a lovely shade of blue - but not dried yet. Please help??? OMG< I'm seriously freaked - these are my beloved Clothmopolitans, a Kiwi Pie and Sugar Plum Baby diapers....

oh my mama! i hope this helps. i figured this out on accident lol....i had accidently washed something red in hot with my lights...well obviously some things came out pink and purple lol. one of them was a towel and next time i washed all my towels in vinegar the purple towel came back out it's original light blue color.

so try washing in vinegar and see what happens!!!!!! i can't promise anything but it's worth a try right?!?!

Mana will probably tell you to wash them with RIT color remover and she is SOOOOOO right! This happened to me and that stuff works awesome! It *may* remove some colors, but it mainly only did to my woven fabrics and my wipes. You can also wash them with the color catchers first to see if that helps. Those work really well too.

I'm sorry mama-that is THE WORST feeling ever! ((HUGS))

yep plain white vinegar.
i was thinking the rit too....i just wasn't sure if that would mess with the colors that were meant to be on the dipes.

okay i bought the rit. I'm draining the washer with the wet blue dipes as I type.

I told Dh why I needed to run to the Walgreens, and with a look of shock he says - "Your GOOD diapers? GO!"

Just a word of caution, they will probaly fade your Clothmapolitans since they're woven outters. You may want to wash those on hot seperate with the color catchers and see if that works first.
