Help save a shirt that got all weird after Rit Color Remover

I pinked a shirt in the wash with another item, and used a dilute Rit Color Remover solution for only seconds to get the pink out. It came out, and some of the dye on the rest of the fabric continues to come out as well, and the fabric feels all wrong now; it seems to have a residue to it. It's been through multiple hand washings with vinegar and salt in the warmest tolerable water, still all weird.
Rit Color Remover is sodium hydrosulfite and sodium carbonate, manufacturer says no neutralizing needed after a few rinses, which is obviously not the case here. What will fully dissolve and neutralize whatever residue that's clinging to the fabric?
