Will Bleaching My Dress Damage The Fabric?

I was wondering how to bleach a beige dress into white and I was afraid to bleach it too long that it will damage the fabric so I was wondering what tips I can use to dye the dress white from beige?

Dear Gloria,
It really depends on the fabric that the dress is made of – that is, the fiber content. If it is cotton, rayon, linen, or silk, you have a chance of bleaching or “discharging” the dye. You could try Clorox bleach or a discharge product that is available at www.dharmatrading.com. IF the dress is cotton and does not have too much embellishment or trim, a trip through the washer with bleach could do it. I would only try this if you are willing to experiment and are not attached to the outcome. Otherwise go shopping for a white dress.
good luck,
