    Colour Run

    My new maid has ruined my husband shirt as she mixed all the different colours together! Any ideas how to remove the stain from the shirt??

    Might be too late now, but don't let it dry, spray it with a laundry stain spray and rewash it. If it was a white shirt a little bleach or some of that oxygenated laundry powder might do the trick. If that causes the stain to fade, do it again. Key is not to let the dye set by allowing it to dry.
    For the future, they make something called (in the US anyway) a color catcher. You throw it in the wash and it absorbs dye which is floating in the water. We use it for the baby clothes because there are never enough to really fill the washer if we separate by color.
    Good luck!

    I've never heard of a color catcher, but it sonds like we need one at our hosue. What is the brand name?

    Also, anyone had any problems with stain remover in Hong Kong? I've tried a couple of brands and they have actally left blue stains on our clothing. I don't know if it's the product or something in our water/pipes. Very frustrating.

    The two best products I think you can use in HK must be NAPPYSAN and VANISH

    I think the color catcher is a "Shout" product.
    Were those blue stains on white clothes?
