If you're using bleach in any form as a discharge agent, the piece can be "neutralized" by rinsing well in a vinegar and water solution. It'll reduce wear and holes, especially on highly concentrated areas. Always wash your fabrics first too, as some imported fabrics are sized with Formaldehyde, which is TOXIC period, never mind being mixed with bleach! I have a diploma in textile arts and safety is the paramount thing they taught us no matter what technique it was!!! Do any chemical work in a well ventilated area!

Should you rinse the shirt in vinegar solution before or after you have bleached it?  thanks.

lalage, could you expand on that super duper info? i.e. should you rinse in vinegar/water solution, then wash as normal?

cheers!  Grin
