AMES, IOWA -- This season I bought at Target a 4T girls Cherokee neon pink swimming suit. She has been using it all summer, and it still bleeds profuse amounts of hot pink dye on everything. It even pools up on itself leaving darker areas on the suit where the dye has settled when wet. I can't let the suit touch any other items otherwise they turn pink. I rinse it out by itself in the sink and it immediately turns the water HOT PINK. It even leaves a pink film in the bathtub and everything if I don't put it on the clothes line right away. I have a hard time believing that this is the result a company would want customers to have.

Our mothers' advice rings in the ears - always be careful when washing red/pink clothing. This suit may ruin anything it comes in contact with after swimming, such as a car seat.

Sounds like the quality of the dying may not have been up to par at whatever country the fabric was sourced from.

Anyone ever thrown in a red item by mistake into the wash? I did once and only once. Everything turned out a lovely shade of pink. I thought I'd never get that color washed out. I would think in this day and age a swimsuit would be colorfast. Apparently not. Thanks for the review.

You did not bring it back to the store when you first noticed the color leak? That is not normal.
Now that you have accepted the dye issue, if anything is damaged like white leather car seats...you have no recourse.
Is her skin staining? Any rash or itch?
