aggrivated with myself

  1. Just splashed bleech on new jogging suit. It was so pretty, I looked so nice in it. I am perfectly aware of the dangers of bleech and have not had a bleech related accident in years. Matter of fact I usually invest a few extra pennys in that no splash Clorox. Combine the fact that the last time I purchased bleech they were out of no splash with the fact that my co-ordination and thought processess are not as sharp due to recent surgery. What I end up with is ruined outfit. Just have to keep telling myself in the larger universe this is a small thing.

    Depending on what kind of fabric it is, you might be able to dye the whole shooting match. Also, some dry cleaners do dye work, or can send it away to another shop to be dyed. If you really like it, and/or sunk a lot of $$$ in the outfit, you might want to consider that.

    If the spots are small, I have been known to touch them up with magic marker. Works great, but sometimes you have to blend colors!

    Thankyou for your advice. It is so nice that people are so kind as to take time to respond to such a mundane post. Some of these suggestion may actually help. The outfit has elaborate embroidery on it and is no longer suitable to wear to bookclub or mall. However, I can still wear it on a brisk day for walk in park.

    Oh the dreaded bleach... sorry that happend

    How large is the spot? maybe a steamstress could replace the spot with another piece of material from the outfit, if that is possible.

    I know how you feel...
    I had this brand new silk shirt and instead of cutting the tag out I decided to give it a yank!
    Yes, I ripped my new shirt! I took the same darn tag and used it with some iron on fabric tape on the inside of the shirt to make a patch.
