Depending on how permanent the dye is that has been stained on to your clothes, you have a few options to help. Some are traditional methods that have been used for years, others are commercial products, adapted from the traditional methods, that aim to be quick and easy to use.
It also depends on the colour and type of fabric the clothing item is made from. Removing a dye stain from white fabric is easy because most white fabrics are safe to use bleach or chlorine on, you can simply mix a quarter cup of chlorine bleach in a gallon of cool water and soak it for 30 minutes, before rinsing and fully washing the item.
On white or colorfast fabric, you will need a packet of a color run remover, such as Carbona. Mix this with four gallons of hot water (up to the maximum allowed with the fabric) and soak the item in the water until the dye stain is removed, then rinse. You might need to repeat the above action if the stains are particularly stubborn. Again, wash the item fully before wearing it.
Sometimes dye stains can get on upholstery, such as sofas and curtains. In these cases removal is more difficult but still possible. You need a tablespoon of washing up liquid, a tablespoon of white vinegar and two cups of cool water. Sponge on the solution over the stain for at least 30 minutes, using fresh liquid every five minutes. Then blot with cool water, and alcohol until the stain is removed; this should remove the stain.

There is Cloth washing bleach easily available in the market these days. You will need that to get your shirt back to its original color. Follow the instruction at the back of the bottle and mix appropriate amount of bleach inside water. Keep the shirt in the tub of bleach and water for 20 minutes, and your shirt will be the same
that it was before washing.
