So I tried to bleach some dominos.  I tried both black wood & the white plastic with big colorful numbers.  I put them a dozen or so in a container & poured enough bleach to submerge them all.

I left them over night, then pulled one out; no change in color & the white were still glossy.

So, I left them for about 9 more hours, then pulled one out; no change in color & the white were still glossy.

So, I left them over night again, then pulled one out; no change in color & the white were still glossy.

So, both types spent over 32 hours in regular Clorox with no change at all, what could I have been doing wrong?

Are you trying to remove the color of the dots?  Or the plastic/wood??

I don't think bleach will do anything to plastic!  But have you tried Acetone ?

Apparently my wife was logged in when I originally posted this thread, anyway, I had read both on here & in a number of sites online that leaving the domino in bleach for between 4 - 24 hours should de-glaze it & remove the need to sand the domino before stamping it or decorating it in other ways.  Unfortunately I just could not get it to work.  I have the feeling I'm missing something, but just can't seem to figure out what it was.

I soaked my dominoes in pure Clorox for 3 days, and it took all the shine off, as I hoped.  I don't know why yours didn't come off?
I did it on the ivory "new" dominoes, (from Target).
Sorry I cannot be of more help...
