Bleach Stain On Silk

Hi Jennifer I have a camisole that is 97% silk, electric blue that somehow ended up sitting next to a cloth saturated in window cleaner. You can imagine my horror when I picked up the top to find the areas where they had been touching had been bleached!
Can I just dye the whole garment with the same color dye, or do I need to bleach out all the color and start again??
Please help Thanks Dani

Hi Dani,
I really don’t know what to do here. If the fabric has been affected by chlorine bleach, it can’t be over-dyed. If the color was disturbed by another factor, you can try over dyeing with a darker blue. If you really want to salvage the piece, I suggest talking to Sherry at www.fabricdyeing.com. She will be able to more accurately guarantee the results than I am able to predict.
