Getting Easter Egg Dye Out of Clothes!

Dyeing eggs is a fun tradition, but it can be a pretty messy one too if the kids get careless. So if one of your little artists ends up dyeing his or her shirt instead of the eggs, make sure you try this laundry tip.

Remember, though, the food dyes used on most Easter egg dyes are a bit tough to treat. The sooner you can clean the stain the better.

Step 1
Begin by running cold water through the back of the spot. Make sure the water (which will be carrying some dye) doesn’t touch other parts of the clothing, or you’ll just make the problem worse.

Step 2
Put on a rubber glove and work a liquid laundry detergent or stain pretreatment into the fabric by hand. Don’t scrub away at the spot – just work in the detergent.

Step 3
Run the shirt/pants through the wash (by itself). Check and see if the spot has disappeared. If it’s gone, you can dry the clothing and breath a sigh of relief. If it’s still there, go to the next step.

Step 4
In a bowl, mix a color-safe bleach with warm water and let the item soak overnight (follow all instructions on the bleach).

Step 5
Thoroughly rinse out the item come morning and launder it by itself.

After all that, the stain should be gone. If it’s still there, well, you may have the beginnings of a new tie-dye shirt!
