    How do you get pink dye out of white shorts?

    A:

    Use chlorine bleach to remove the pink dye from your white shorts, as long as they are safe to bleach. The process takes just a few minutes with chlorine bleach, but the shorts need to air dry to ensure all the traces of pink disappear. If you prefer to avoid chlorine bleach, substitute oxygen bleach, and increase the soaking time.

    How do you remove dye from clothes?

    A:

    To remove dye from white clothing, chlorine bleach works best.
