I have new bath towels that are mostly white with a dark blue band at each end. How can I prevent the blue from bleeding into the white?

Answer

If the colour runs, then this would indicate poorly dyed towels, so you really need to decide whether you want to keep them or not. If you really want them, and don't mind spending additional money on them, then you can treat them with a colour fixative like retayne.
