Question about bleach :(

Recommended Posts

I was doing laundry earlier today and I just looked down and noticed that I spilled a drop of bleach on my black cotton dress crybaby2.gif

 

Anyone have any miracle cureshuh.gif Can I dye the part that got discolored?

 

I am so sad about it...I really loved this dress sad.gif

can you use some Rit Dye? You will have to dye the whole dress probably. You can get Rit Dye at Target or the grocery store.

nikki, how big is the spot? my advice would depend on how big it is. rit dye is probably your best bet to dye the whole dress. be careful though, it can be messy and youll want to run your washer empty once after dying the dress in the washing machine (which is the easiest way to do it).

if the sharpie doesn't work, try some fabric paint. There are different types, check out a craft store like michaels.

 

You are lucky it was black. I ruined a BRAND NEW suit with one tiny drop of bleach (seriously, the stain is like the size an ant). It felt on the pants, but the pants are like taupe color with off-white pin stripes. Once the pants were ruined, I had no use for the blazer sad.gif

HAHA.... I thought I was the only silly person to use permanent marker on my clothes. I once had a sweater where only the seams had discolored after a few washes so I was in my office coloring the seam of my sweater. My coworker caught me and thought I was so crazy. Hee Hee. It works!

 

But make sure it's dry before you wear it.....I had to be careful not to hug anyone for about 10 min wink.gif
