Bra, Nursing Pads turn pink?

My husband does laundry every two weeks (we have a high-capacity washer), so I usually wash my nursing bras and pads by hand between laundry days. I have noticed over time that they are gradually turning pink (originally white). Has anyone else had this happen? Does anyone know why this happens?

It's probably the original dye wearing out. You could try bleaching them or washing them with Biz (I think that's what it's called) to get the original color back. I don't know about pink though, mine usually turn an ugly gray.

Mine are turning a yucky brown yellow from the olive oil.

Maybe it's a red sock in your laundry bleeding out. My nursing bras are still in their original colors (white still white, beige still beige).

It's not the laundry, because they get less pink in the wash. When I take off the wet ones, I usually don't get a chance to wash them until later, and as they sit next to the sink, they pinker. I thought maybe it was something in the milk. Oh, well.

I have no clue if this would be the case, but could deoderant, body spray, stuff like that be causing the staining? My body spray (pearberry... yum!) is a bright red color in the bottle. If I sprayed too much on, I suppose it's likely that a little would rub off and turn my bras colors.
