A simple way to make unique T-shirt

How to decorate T-shirt using bleach

If you’ve al­ways want­ed to be a de­sign­er but didn't know how to start, here’s a sim­ple way to cre­ate a unique T-shirt at home!

Safe­ty pre­cau­tions

  • At­ten­tion! Ob­serve safe­ty pre­cau­tions when han­dling these sub­stances.
  • Con­duct this ex­per­i­ment with pro­tec­tive gloves, eye­wear, and a mask.

Reagents and equip­ment

  • col­or­ful T-shirt;
  • plas­tic or glass pro­tec­tive lin­er;
  • bleach (15% sodi­um hypochlo­rite so­lu­tion);
  • glass dish;
  • brush.

Step-by-step in­struc­tions

In­sert the lin­er into the T-shirt to pro­tect the back. Use a brush to ap­ply bleach to the front of the T-shirt. Your draw­ing will “ap­pear” over time.

Process de­scrip­tion

Bleach usu­al­ly con­tains sodi­um hypochlo­rite NaO­Cl. Hypochlo­rite ion is a strong ox­i­diz­ing agent. It breaks bonds in the dye mol­e­cules, chang­ing their struc­ture and caus­ing the fab­ric to light­en. Wash the T-shirt be­fore wear­ing.
