I’ve just discovered something very odd about my sheets and you seem like an intelligent group of people so I was wondering can anyone tell me how to fix this?
So I bought new sheets recently and the time has come to wash them. But when I pulled them off the bed I found the color has actually come off on the bedding?? Now they are colorfast apparently. I washed them when I first bought them, before I put them on the bed, and before I put them in the machine I checked and wet patches first to make sure it didn’t leak color. And they didn’t. But now my pillowcases and mattress have turned purple from the sheets (they’re black sheets) and also the wall behind the bed has purple marks on it (no headboard). Does anyone know why this would have happened? And how to get the purple marks off the wall?
Admittedly the instructions on the sheets say to warm wash them and I cold washed them but that’s because I always wash everything in cold water because it’s a waste of hot water. I’ve never had any problem with this before.
