Colour intensive garments can quickly cause discolourations when they are mistakenly washed with other garments. The colours bleed out and distribute the colour residue onto the entire laundry. The original colours can be re-created with Dr. Beckmann In-Wash Colour Run Remover. Special ingredients remove the discolourations and destroy the unwanted colours. After the colour removal, the garments will look as they did before.

This is how the colour removal will be successful:

  • Observe the temperature specifications and care instructions of the textiles.
  • Before removing the colour on coloured laundry that has been discoloured, it is necessary to test the original colour (all original colour tones except pure white) by performing the following colour-fastness test: dissolve ½ teaspoon colour remover powder in 100 ml of hot water, and thoroughly soak the garment in an inconspicuous area. The Dr. Beckmann In-Wash Colour Run Remover may be used if:
  1. the treated colour tones do not change during the application, and during the 15 minute reaction time (not even temporarily - please observe closely).
  2. the original colours have not changed after the washing and drying.
  • For stubborn stains, we recommend performing the colour removal in a container, because the longer reaction time increases the effectiveness of the colour removal process.

Not suitable for

  • Synthetic fibres
  • Jeans
  • Indanthren colours
  • For the removal of sun lotion/milk or self-tanner stains

How it works

  • Completely dissolve the contents of one bag in 6 l very hot (above 30 °C) water.
  • Add up to 1.75 kg discoloured laundry and immerse fully (do not add any detergent). Information regarding laundry weights can be found under "Frequently asked questions".
  • Close the container airtight.
  • Let the laundry soak for at least 4 hours. In case of a strong discolouration or low temperatures (up to 40 °C) it is recommended to continue the soaking overnight.
  • Afterwards, rinse thoroughly several times with clean water.
  • Add up to 3.5 kg discoloured laundry. Information regarding laundry weights can be found under "Frequently asked questions".
  • Select the maximum temperature (above 40 °C) and start the programme without prewash and detergent (do not add any detergent).
  • Afterwards, pour the contents of both bags into the main detergent compartment, and wash with 1-2 litres of water (top-loaders: directly onto the drum).
  • If a slight discolouration is still visible after the washing, the process can be repeated safely.
