I took the paper napkin, dipped it in water, and began to dab the spot carefully. But to my utter shock, BLUE dye came off the dress and into the napkin and where I dabbed, the blue bled into the white lattice design.
I wore the dress the rest of the evening, 110 degrees in the Iowa shade, unaware that I was perspiring like crazy until I took the dress off and saw my armpits were BLUE and the dress was bleeding like crazy.
They said they would of course refund my money when I return the dress but I said I love the dress enough that I’d like to try and save it. Did they know of any way of setting the color?
Wash with salt! So that’s what I’m doing. Now. I made sure LE will still refund me if the salt wash doesn’t work (I’m not holding my breath). Yes.
Twenty-two minutes to go in the wash cycle. Photo to come. Any bets??
Well, what’ya know., The salt wash worked. It not only removed the blue bleeding, it got out the original spot.
