What colors can I wash with white?

ANSWER: It is not a good idea to wash whites with colored clothes if you want your white clothes to stay white. Cold water washing will not make clothes bleed color like hot water will. Color transfer can still happen when using only cold water so it is best to keep colors and whites separated.

Hand wash clothes separately that have bled color previously. For clothes that may bleed, like blue jeans, wash them in a load with similarly colored clothing. Do not rely on detergents and color catcher cloths that promise to trap dye. They are not reliable and you may still end up with pink underwear.
