Colour transferred on my Red Wings jersey. SOS.

I was handwashing my Red Wings jersey [red sleeves, white body] in warm water (I know, dumb idea) and the red coulor from the neck transferred onto some parts of the jersey. I dabbed bleach on it, and some came off.

I was wondering if this has happened to someone and what you did to fix it. Would the dry cleaners be a solution? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Very weird. I have a ton of Wings jerseys & I have never even bothered to hand wash them. I just throw a load of them into the wash with regular detergent and they always come out fine. I always use oxyclean to get out stains - maybe try that with cold water.

Hummm. Sure it's a legit jersey to being with?

Legit or not I dont think you can do anything to fix it other then trying to bleach it some more or find a white dye if it exsists.

Good thing white red wings jerseys are farily common and not very pricy.

That's another thing too - it's legitimacy. It's a CCM [not a vintage], it's what they wore in the Yzerman days. But the tag says Made in Indonesia. All of my others are Canadian-made. I have a white vintage Oilers that I handwash the same way and the orange/blue has never bled. Was I duped? Most of the red is faded, but the ring is still a bit noticeable. I'm reading all these things about OxiClean. Anyone know which OxiClean product? Once I get my camera, I'll post up a pic.

CCM did make 550's in Indonesia in the 03-06 time frame. I was the one who posted about the dangers of Oxyclean causing bleeding. In my instance, it was a Canadian-made Hurricanes' white 550. I washed it in cold water with a ProPlayer CBJ authentic white jersey. I used cold water, a small amount of powder detergent, and a half cup of Oxyclean powder. In my case, the red in the crest and the shoulder patches bled to the surrounding white. The CBJ jersey had no damage at all. The jersey was ruined, but thankfully, I had spares so I didn't lose anything important. I had never used Oxyclean on jerseys before, and had never had any issues with other clothing items, so I figured it would be safe. I was wrong. I have around 400 jerseys, so they are important to me. If someone wants to use that stuff on a jersey, so be it. I HIGHLY discourage it. But for those who keep using it, one day it may cause damage to a valuable or important jersey and that would be a shame. And totally preventable.

This is the jersey in question. The photo was taken after I treated it. The flash was on, but if it wasn't, the pic will be blurry. The red ring [pun] is between the logo and the top red stripe. Noticeable?
