Is that okay with you?

Do you know if non-chlorine bleach would work in the same way?

I’m a girl scout leader and my troop makes troop t-shirts each year. This is our 5th year and I was running out of ideas (and so done with tie dye and fabric/puffy paint. This is fabulous new option!

Awesome way to personalise our Girl Scout Troop shirts.

It’s descriptive and the best one I’ve seen! I was wondering if this would work if i made a stencil and put the bleach in a spray bottle?

I actually recommend not washing them first. Having the sizing on there to give you a lot more control even though it takes longer for the color to fade. My first (pre-washed) batch was a complete fail because the bleach so quickly seeped right under the vinyl designs. thanks for another great idea Gabby!

In the very least it can add a speckled look if you ever need it. That’s what I do whenever I bleach shirts

Wonder what we could use as ‘resist’ that bleach wouldn’t bleed through. Perhaps a water based glue that would wash out after the bleaching process was complete.

I was actually thinking this would be a great summer project and an awesome way to recycle the tees the kids have gotten those little oily stains on. I want to try to do a fairy design for my daughter and drum sticks for my son….
