Chemically bleach is bleach. There isnt any differance from 99cent store brand and a $3 bottle of cholorox. However, bleach degrages if it is exposed to light for longer than 24hrs, so just be sure to get new bleach if you leave your spray bottle out for a few days.
I did notice a differance in how much a prewashed shirt bleached vs. a brandnew shirt that still had sizing, or whatever chemicals in it that hadnt been washed off. But thats just my experience, Im sure everyone who tried the process has there own 2cents.

here is my take on this fantastic idea:



a few tips that i learned from this project:

- 'press n' seal' is amazing.  i took the stuff and pressed it onto a paper stencil, cut it out with an exacto knife, and the stencil was made.  it curls up a little when you take it off the paper, but it's not too hard to untangle and press onto the shirt.

- i just used undiluted bleach.  when i was happy with the result, i immediately put the shirt into white vinegar to neutralize the bleach.  i didn't wear gloves, and acid burns, so i'd reccomend wearing gloves or not putting your hands in it. 

this was a really great idea.  and i like the horsey better than the bicycle, but it was definitely a fun project and seemingly a new trend.

Another inspiration for my bleach-crazy desires!

I love to use soft scrub with bleach and drizzle it all over. It makes pretty lines. I might try stenciling with ss -- it's just so fun to spray when it's almost used up and such. Every stencil shirt I've seen in the thread is lovely. LOVELY. I'm inspired. Great job everyone!

I think as long as you used an embrodiary hoop any thread would do. Im sure a nice embordiary floss would look great.
