That is great! It would be a good thing to do with a garment that has already fallen victim to a bleach spot - Dying such an item would not work, but bleaching the rest of it would!

Gasp! I have a favorite pair of brown pants that I got bleach on at work. My teaching assistant mixed my bleach bottle about half bleach, instead of 1 tsp. per bottle, and I cleaned a table and leaned against it, leaving a nice spotty line above my knees.

I could make cool plant patterns all over it, instead of throwing it out! What a revelation! Those are the softest, most comfortable pants!

Thanks, Melody! You're a genius!

Very cool! We did tie dye this summer with my daughter and her friends, but you can only have so many tie dye shirts in your wardrobe... this will be next summer's project!

Well, I'm of the 'you can never have too much tie dye' camp. (I do that too) Discharges are fun and don't take as long. It can be done and cleaned up in an hour and my tie dyes have to sit 24 hours, wet, before I can untie and rinse. Yep, if you need a gift in a hurry, the discharge is much faster...and a bit different.

What a fun project and great instructions. Maybe a Christmas vest with poinsettias or holly or greenery boughs? More fun in summer when you can be outside longer I expect.

I've done it in my garage at home during the winter if I needed something in a pinch, but I have to crack the windows, or my whole house smells like bleach. Best done outside...as long as it isn't freezing.

Oh, I really don't like the smell of bleach. When I was young I used to complain to my mother about that awful smell, but she would seemed shocked and say --It Smells Clean!!
To this day i don't think so.

LOL Beebonnet, that's how my son feels about the smell of laundry detergent or fabric softener. He smelled a "clean linen" candle, and said, "Yuck, it smells like clean laundry!"
