    Be careful with bleach. It destroys fabrics. You might want to try other "bleaching" agents first, like oxiclean. It is supposedly less caustic.

    oxiclean is great for stains, but i think he is trying to change the actual color of his shirt.

    When I saw the thread title, I assumed he was trying to bleach the pit-stains out of a wifebeater.

    Yeah, I misread, though it's a bit unclear. Enough bleach to completely turn something white usually leaves the end garment extremely brittle. I don't recommend it, but if you don't care, go ahead.

    I thought the same thing...I got so excited. It was gonna be like a huge gold mine for classist and offensive remarks...so disappointing [​IMG] Oh, and as to the actual thing - if the shirt is cheap, go for it. Just make sure you apply it evenly so you don't KINDA bleach it but not totally.
