So awhile ago I wore my Orangina over a cheap-o black top from Forever 21. Then last night, I went to show my Orangina off to a friend and the yarn had been tainted black around the arm pits!!! GROSS!

I gave Orangina a bath this morning in the soap I usually use for my knits, and I added some salt. It seemed to help a little, but not much.

Is there any way I can get these hideous stains out? I really love my Orangina  Embarrassed

It might help if you let us know what kind of fiber the yarn you used was made of. Smiley

Oh snap! I'm a dummy.
The yarn is 100% cotton, more specifically, Rowan 4-ply cotton.

I don't know if this would help, but what about using those new cloths you throw in the wash to absorb all those errant dyes that screw up your clothes?  I would prolly do a hand-wash with it, but I've heard they work pretty well.

I just found in the dye FAQ section a link for getting color out. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=199181.msg2114038#msg2114038

I don't know if that will help, but if you haven't already asked, you could look for someone with more experience in this on that board (plenty of people dye, but don't knit). Smiley
