5 steps on how to remove dye transfer stains from clothes
Step 2: Dose
Use the necessary amount of Tide Double Power for a new bucket you want to handwash in, or in your washing machine.
Step 3: Load
Take out your garments from the soaking solution, and without rinsing off the detergent, place them into the new bucket or into your washing machine.
Step 4: Wash
Wash in warm water, or in the machine based on your usual cycle, on the hottest wash temperature indicated by the garments’ fabric care label.
Step 5: Unload
When the process is complete, unload the garments immediately. If the dye transfer stain persists, repeat the previous steps. If they’re gone, dry your clothes as normal.
