Dye rubbing off?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Question: I just bought a new duvet from PB teen (light blue). I was laying on my bed in my Ephedrine roths, and a little while later I noticed that it looked like dark blue transferred onto the fabric, or that there was an irregularity with the duvet itself. I've only washed the jeans once or twice... So- Is it the jeans or the duvet? My duvet is going to be fine (since it was literally right out of the package), but do jeans really transfer color like that?

Someone else asked about this a long time ago...they were told that the dye does rub off, they asked about it being rubbed off on their skin....maybe try a search...I'm too lazy to do it for you

yep it happens, esp w/ darker washes. ephedrine wash can turn your legs and underpants blue. i notice when i shower b/c the water turns blue

Didn't think to search, sorry...

Is it only going to be with ephedrine? Hopefully I won't ruin my new duvet

No it's not only ephedrine wash, this also happens to me a lot w/ my R&Rs.. the dye will show up on white sweaters, undies, my shoes, etc.

It's not just the R&Rs. A lot of dark wash jeans of any brand can rub off. It's a common complaint on the Purse Board with white purses - the dye of the jeans rubs off on the purses when the purse hit the leg.

My Ephedrines did that, too! I always had blue hands when I wore them. By the way, they are for sale in the mall.....(shameless plug)

I find the dye rubs off on ALL washes but it's more noticeable in the darker washes.

it definitely rubs off. I ruined a pair of spanking new Chucks with my uraniums.

you can prevent or minimize the bleeding effect of your jeans by tossing in a cup of white vinegar in the washer the next time you wash your jeans. Vinegar will "set" the color in clothing.

Stupid question... but hot/warm/cold? Would it help if I added a couple of those shout dye catcher sheets?
