ok me and the hubbie are having a debate at the minute. bought the little man an england kit to wear for today, he has been playing outside and came in looking like he lived in the slums. i have just washed the kit together red top with white band, white shorts with red stripe (washed the socks seperate) and now he has pink shorts on the label it says 40 degree wash, my washing machine is an old one so just says whites, whites heavy soil, delicates, woolens etc, has anyone had a kit that has run or have i washed it wrong. help me settle this debate please

I would have washed the shorts separately
#2
I wouldn't have bought a fake kit in the first place.
#3
Mixing red and white in the same wash with a brand new item..... pink is what i would of expected
#4
see this is an ongoing thing as i am a freak with washing and never mix greys with whites and if i have 1 colour t.shirt i would wash it on its own basically i would do 4/5 loads of washing a day to be certain things dont run, people think i am mad and say if it has 2 colours together i.e red and white the red wont run into the white clearly chatting rubbish.

Sounds like you bought a fake kit:)


i have considered that we got it from sports soccer yesterday official tags etc but nowadays that means nowt
#6
i always wash socks seperate so as not to dye anything so with the colours you have described i wouldnt have thought the dye would have run with what you did! if its real
#7
If the stripes were in the same cotton material, not like a plastic transfer stripe, I would have stuck both red and white striped shorts and top in together - it's a sports kit for goodness sakes, you should be able to plonk it in the machine altogether.

so you decided to be a non freak and now have pink shorts - lol

I don't think you necessarily washed it wrong.
This happened to an England rugby top I washed. The red on the collar bled into the rest of the shirt.
I bought a packet of colour run stuff from the supermarket and washed it with that, and that helped get the pink out a bit.

I think you can get different colour run stuff (sheets, a bit like the ones you put in tumble dryers) that you put in before it happens, to stop it happening - I think I would use those next time to see if they help.

even though its a kit the red top has white badge and arms and the shorts have red stripes so surely even washing them seperate this would of happend, the top would of run into the white and vice versa
#11
I have 3 separate washes

Whites, Black/Dark Blue and Others

Shorts would have gone in Whites, top in Others
#12
may try and take it back 2morow doubt i will get anywhere as they will say i have washed it wrong but oh well will give it whirl

Exactly. You did nothing wrong.... Apart from getting it from SC ;-)
#14
I would've washed it all together on a cool wash as the red and white are on both items.
#15
Tell them you washed both items by hand and this is what has happened

thought of doing that but its annoyed me as i washed it right, time to argue on some 15yr olds 2morow dont think i have seen an adult work in sports soccer
#17
Would never wash white shorts with a red top. I always separate colours from whites
banned#18
i always wash new items on there own with 1 white sock, so for future ref i know if they run or not
#19
Little stuff i would have hand washed all seperate the first time to see if it did run.
#20
I would have bought an Irish kit.
Pale green has got to beat pink anyday of the week. :giggle:
#21
Good luck getting your money back or a decent out come.
#22
a "whites" wash is likely to be 60 degrees plus....bound to run new clothes at that heat.

must be a more appropriate cycle...whats etc? delicates or woolens would be lower heat tho
