This is Why you should Pre-Wash Fabric

Of nine black fabrics, FIVE of them bled. Look how shocked Duckie is in the second photo....pretty sure he is thinking "WTF", but I don't speak Duck. This is why I take the time to pre-wash ALL my fabric....shrinking and bleeding are no fun to deal with later. I promise.

To fix it:
1 cup vinegar
1/2 cup salt
mild detergent
cold water.
