    One thing you shouldn't do is put the clothing in the dryer after youv'e accidently changed the colour, the heat will set the pink. I've found that pink is always the hardest to get rid off. If I were you I would rewash it with one cup of bleach if the clothes come out with pink still in them try a colour remover like Rit you can buy this at a hardware store or a material shop or some grocery stores have them. Just follow the directions on the box. But if you use a colour remover your white may come out as beiges or natural because white is also a colour. So I would try bleach first and always remember not to set the colour accident by putting in the dryer. Good luck.

    Use Clorox bleach, Set your washing machine to Pre-soak & let them soak for about 30 mins. Repeat if necessary. Then wash them in the Normal cycle with regular Tide with bleach detergent

    Be extra careful in sorting laundry, one small red item can change an entire load. If you have not dried the items in a dryer you should be able to wash the load over in hot water with bleach.

    If they are pure white you can get RIT dye out, however be warned if they are a light color it will remove all the color and bring the fabric back to white. You can find the RIT products at walmart in the laundry section.
