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!
- 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;
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.
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.
