I want to bleach a teal 50% cotton/50% polyester shirt to make it white-will it turn blotchy?

I am using standard clorox bleach-I don’t like the teal color, and am hoping to bleach it white or nearly white, but I don’t want to ruin it and make it look tie-dyed. Does anyone have any experience with this?

    Soak it in a mixture of bleach and water. Just don’t leave it in too long the bleach will start to deteriorate the material after time.

    I’m agreeing that if the bleach doesnt eat it up, it’ll be blotchy.

    I hate teal too–why don’t you just dye it a darker color?

    If you make sure your shirt is VERY VERY wet all the way through…then put it in the wahing machine with your laundry product and your bleach it should be ok…I used to tye-dye shirts and that worked for me.

    They also have a product (RIT DYE) for stripping color from a product. http://www.ritdye.com/

    Have fun and lot’s of luck!

    PS: what a great site……have fun!

    It would have to soak so long to get it white it would just eat it.

    Use white fabric dye
