Bleach pen graphic tees (attempt #2- success!)

Posted on

Back in January, I attempted to follow a Pin I found on Pinterest.  The Pin showed how to revitalize old tees by adding bleach graphics to them.  The first attempt at three different t-shirts failed.  I have since discovered that only the Clorox Bleach Pen for WHITES works.  The other bleach pens are not strong enough to bleach colors.  This time I only attempted one t-shirt to see if it would work.  The bleached out color was a surprise, but it did work.  Now I can use this technique on other things – old canvas bags, placemats, tablecloths, etc…
