Several weeks ago I purchased Clorox Bleach Crystals
hoping that they would work better than liquid bleach
in my front load washing machine...
I have not tried them on my laundry yet,
but I have decided to try them out today
on Kona Black Cotton Fabric:
I so enjoy ice dyeing, so thought I would try
ice discharge with Clorox Bleach crystals.
After several hours of watching the ice melt:
I am just not seeing a whole lot of discharge of color?
Not in my second discharge container either.
After the ice was completely melted...
I couldn't stand it...
I sprinkled the ice crystals directly onto the wet fabric.
Then I let it sit overnight:
The ice crystals worked wonderfully well on wet fabric.
I didn't have much luck with the ice discharge method,
but they worked directly sprinkled on the fabric!
I found the crystals to be a mild bleach...
Waiting overnight was the key to my success.
This is an image of the entire 1 yard Kona Black discharge:
I love the red discharge color in this section.
I also discharged 3 black cotton tote bags:
The crystals discharged in places like salt on painted fabric.
Can you see the specks?
I am ready to discharge black hand dyed fabrics,
as well as dark navy, purple, etc.
More to come!
