Purple on my pink isn't nearly as good as peanut butter on my chocolate!
  :-)

My DF in trying to help me out, through a pile of fabric I had sitting
on the washing machine in with a load of clothes he was doing.  The only
problem is that I hadn't sorted out the one pale pink FQ in amongst the
deep purple ones.  So yes, I've now got purple on my pink.  Any way to
get it out?

TIA!

Rit Color Run Remover.  works on the transferred color, not the
original color.
Note: I haven't used it, but have some "just in case". Those I know
who have used it say it works great.

Have fun,

Yes, it is quite good. I've had about 90% success rate. It works best when
the transferred color is still fresh, so be prompt in trying to correct the
problem. NAYY. PAT

90% is not too bad!  Naturally, I've already procrastinated on this
though.....

Why not just leave it as is and go with the flow!  I'll bet is kind of cool
looking!

That's what I'd be tempted to do! My luck, though, it would wash out
at the first wash...

LOL!  Well, you may have a point, Dreamweaver.  Actually, the purple
and the pink are going in the same quilt.  :-)

Wash it a second time but soak it for a bit before.  It might come out and
it might not but at least you will know it won't run.  Do make sure
whatever it picked up the colour from has been soaked again and won't run
again.

Luckily it is a fat quarter and not a finished quilt or your favorite
blouse.  You don't want to discourage anyone else from doing laundry.

Good luck - I do find catching it quickly as you did usually helps.

Thanks Kelly.  It is good advice about giving it a 2nd run through to
make sure that whatever is there is going to stay (or possibly leave).

And yes, much better a FQ than someone's favorite light colored shirt.
Luckily, all the clothes in the washer were dark.  It was just this poor
pink FQ snuggled in between two purples that he didn't know was there.

Then mayhaps what you should be asking is for a way to SET the color
that ran.
Then you'll have a transition color...

Oh, the posibilities... THE POSSIBILITIES...
