So, I had a new blue gi and a new white gi washed together by mistake and some of the blue dye bled into the white one...

What are some effective recommendations to get the white gi back to a crisp white again...

Please help!

Thanks..

Little bit of bleach. Doesn't really weaken the gi too much. Will still last you a very long time.
Or OxiClean.

The only issue with bleach is that I have all my team patches on the gi :-X

I've read a lot of good tips using OxiClean, will give that a shot...thanks

Keep wearing and washing the white one. Eventually, it will wash itself out a little every time. Happened to a couple of mine and they are fine now.
