Heres a tip:  DO NOT USE SHOUT DUAL ACTION STAIN REMOVER!!!  Even if you follow the directions the agents aren't guaranteed to mix properly and this could happen to you!!! 

So I Shout treated my beloved khaki green long Garage hoodie......

and now its covered on one side and the back with orangey "the dye has been removed" spots and streaks.  Huh Embarrassed Sad Undecided Cry

And ideas what I should do with it (other than the hate mail to the makers of the product....maybe I'll get a coupon....)?
Will try to post a pic after it dries.

Where the wild things are is where I am most at home!

i'm sorry about your loss i hate when washing goes wrong... any ways depending on where the damage is maybe you could make it into a cropped hoodie, i once did this with and xxL hoodie i got for free.   i put a zipper in the front and it turned out pretty cute.  thats all i have as far as ideas icould help more if you had pictures

send it to me Wink i'm dying for more hoodies but can't find any plain ones ever.

orrr you could just use that stain as a springboard. i know a lot of people use the bleach pens to make awesome stencil-y designs on clothes, using that weird bleachy color, and it usually turns out amazing. or you could stencil something over top of it, or patch it or something. or i guess you could sew it inside a jacket if you have one, like a jean jacket or something.

idk i'd go crazy with it if it were mine

Started a knitting blog.

If what you liked about it was the fit and not a logo or anything then just bleach the whole thing. I don't know if it would turn it white or ruin the cloth  Undecided  but at least it would be all one color and not orange/green.  Grin i dunno

Nobody dies a virgin, because life screws us all.

Depending on how big the stains are you could put patches over the spots. If there are little spots you could paint little flowers on them with fabric paints.

If you don't want to paint anything or put patches on it, you could try to put in some sort of panel in the back. Maybe cover the original back or take off the back and put in some plain contrasting color or a funky pattern.

Hope you find a way to fix it. I know I hate when my favorite clothes get ruined.

Sorry to hear about your hoodie. But maybe you can go with the mistake and draw something on it with a bleach pen. Make it look intentional and add interesting textures?
