ok so i got a little something on myi away ( what used to be home ) Zetterberg jersey. I washed it and the red ran color wise onto the the white. Any tips to maybe fixing the problem?. Also needed info on stain removal , plus input on what everyone did as far as removing stains on their jerseys. Just hoping someone had a great tip ...thanks for your time. - Will
Lol i like how ur not gonna tell us what that stain is, but yeh you are not going to be able to get the red out of the white now, you should have not washed it in warm water, and you should have maybe just used a tide pen or something, but once again do not wash your jersey in warm or hot water, thats what happens, but your also in the wrong forum...
My first tip would be to not wear your jersey while eating/drinking/or doing whatever it is you do in the darkness of your room. Dirt stains and such would be easy, just get one of those stain-remover sticks. Sort of like a giant glue stick but it's awesome stain remover. About colors bleeding, no idea what to tell you. Make sure you wash on cold and dry on the lowest setting.
You should never wash lettered hockey jerseys if they are part of a collection or if you wear them to go to games - the wash causes the numbers to curl up and pill at the stitching. Always get them dry-cleaned.
I think you've got enough advice regarding the stain.
As for the red bleeding into the white. Ouch!! However, the jersey may not be a total loss.
As others have stated, use only the cold water cycle. Also, if you have a "Hand Wash" setting on your washer use that. Otherwise as someone else stated, use the "Gentle Cycle" setting. Tide detergent (very small amount) or a color-safe bleach (again, small amount). Turn the jersey inside out. When the wash is complete let the jersey air-dry (never dry a jersey in a dryer).
You may get most of the red "bleeding" out of the white (I can't guarantee that you'll get all of it out of the white, however).
I've washed many of my authentic football and hockey jerseys in cold water using the hand wash cycle and have never had any colors bleed (including red lettering and logos sewn onto a white jersey).
I'm curious to know what kind of fabric it is. I think most jersey are polyester/nylon, so I wouldn't expect the colours to run.....still, I kind of worry every time I have to put a jersey through the wash.....
I've always handwashed my jerseys in cold water with Wolite <sp>. That works the best. It gets out stains but doesn't damage the jersey as it's very mild. Then hang to dry. Either that or dry cleaning is the way to go. Try that for the stain, or like other people said, the stain pen things. I think you're kind of hosed as far as the bleeding colors though.
