Can you put bleach in a load of white t-shirts with writing?

Asked by siliconcalley (58points) August 30th, 2008

I have some white Ts that have prints and writing on them, but I don’t know if putting bleach would hurt that.

Isn’t there a little tag somewhere on inside of T-shirt with washing instructions on it? Or you could dab a really tiny amt of diluted bleach on one spot with a q-tip and see what happens.

It depends…if it’s dyed pattern or print, it could hurt it…if it’s like an “iron-on” (plastic like feeling) it should be fine. I’d follow Gail’s advice, and test it.

One way around is to use color safe bleach like Clorox II.
