So I've got this dress shirt by Nautica that I really like. Thick blue stripes, thin white stripes, alternating. Recently, when I wash it, it comes out of the wash with bits of pink discoloration, mostly around the edges of the shirt by the buttons, but also on the front panels of the shirt... now, I never put this shirt in the dryer (always hang dry), I always wash it with cold water, perm press cycle, using basic Tide powdered detergent (no bleach), and practically everything else in the wash with it is usually blue. The shirt is a very basic cotton material (i.e. not stretch or synthetic or anything like that). Any thoughts as to why this is happening? I can go buy another, but I don't want to screw the second one up too... I'm not made of money after all. I'll try to steal a digital camera from someone and take a couple of pictures to illustrate.
