About a month ago I bought a pair of yellow shorts from Target. The first time I washed them I use ERA, Oxy Clean powder and liquid fabric softener) they came out of the washing machine with orange spots all over them...so I soaked them in a bucket with detergent and some Oxy Clean. It seemed to get worse, I had to scrub them and then I just let them soak for a couple of days. The spots came out and I washed them again (alone) and they came out fine. I just washed them again today and the same thing happened. The shorts were the only thing in the load that got spots. I have them soaking again but I have no idea what is causing the spots. There isn't anything else that was in the load that could have ran (and I use the Color Catcher sheets as well). So i figured i would see if anyone here had a guess...Could it be the shorts...maybe the dye from them? (they are cotton twill similar to khaki pants) My washing machine is only a little over a year old... I may just have to give up on them and try to find another pair somewhere else.
