Hi! I'm starting my Junior year soon and I have my Jansport Backpack that I'm planning on using. However, I'm not a huge fan of the color. I just recently dyed my hair red, and the combonation of the two isn't ideal. So I'm looking for ways to lighten it/ dull the color. Ideally I'm looking for something this color: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-OfrzRI8Ot5A/TgSbJXzqXFI/AAAAAAAAAcQ/2J0PODi5WSg/s1600/light+blue.jpg.

My first thought was bleach, but I'm not sure how well it work on this fabric, how harsh it would be, if it would damage the bag, etc. So if you all have any other ideas, or advice on how to properly bleach it, that would be fantastic! Thanks for any help.

If it's a nylon bag or nylon blend, it would be impossible to guaranty any kind of result because nylon isn't typically colored with dye, it's most likely a different process, and depending on the process, bleach may or may not work; regular bleach can disintegrate nylon and not affect the color anyway. I would try RIT color remover in the washing machine. I would also prepare myself to kiss the bag goodbye, whatever the method chosen.
