Bleach anyone?


After pulling my tired old black T-shirt out of the wash last night I noticed the color wasn't true black anymore. What's a girl to do? WELL DUH....alter it!

I'd watched a segment on Creative Juice that used gel dishwasher detergent with bleach to stamp on t-shirts. I don't use that stuff but had a bleach pen. I just squirted some out on a yogurt lid and used foam stamps for my images. After the bleach completely dried, I washed and dried it as usual.

My little girl was amazed by the nearly instant bleaching. "Mommy, can you do that to one of my shirts?" Absolutely!

That is cool! A pokemon stencil for the kid t-shirt perhaps?
