I've got a backpack that is light pink [Eastpak] and last year I covered it with stars/bands names using Sharpie. I like the stars but the band names need to go, and I figured I could wash out the decoration.

Does anyone know if Sharpie can come out with the basic scrub or do I need to bleach it? If bleach how long do I need to leave the bleach in?
Bleaching would also give it a cool effect, but I don't want the threading to break from bleach.

Any information would be very kind. Thanks.

Nothing beats going to Denny's at 10 pm with Becoming The Archetype and sharing a milkshake with Seth. Nope, nothing.

i dunno ab out thread breaking. but i have this one jean jacket i splattered bleach on and it looks awesome! maybe u shuld do that

One day whilst I was walkin'
a-walkin' through the park
a hickory caught my eye
with the most attractive bark
nervous, i approached it
eyeing branch to root
anxious, can't believe it

take off all your clothes and
find a tree to fuck and
wrap your legs

Sharpie won't scrub out of nylon--but try one of the Clorox Bleach pens. As long as you only do it *once*, it shouldn't eat through the fabric, and the bleach pen is formulated to go right on fabric so it won't be chemically too strong for the nylon.
