Default Does bleach turn everything white?

Need help on finding out WHY and HOW chlorine bleach is able to remove color from fabrics.

Any and all assistance is greatly appreciated!

actually I spilled bleech on something lightblue and it turned it yellow-ish, so maybe there are colours that are harder for bleech to remove

Default Colors

It depends on what color the fabric is. If you spill bleach on something blue, it will turn red.

so does it just take out certain colours and dyes, so like out of the blue dye it takes out a certain colour but not all of it so it leaves the red dye? Does it also depend on the fabric?

Default Bleaching science fair project

Rachaelrox,

You're on the right track. Different types of bleach have different stain-removing abilities. Take a look at this page [url]http://antiquerestorers.com/Articles/jeff/using_wood_bleach.htm[/url] for more information.

Also see [url]http://www.cleaning101.com/laundry/fact/fact_sheet3.html[/url]

It's clear that Hypochlorite bleaches remove most colors - but are not 100% effective.

well yeah, because that happened when my mom was washing my sister's light blue shirt with bleach and then it turned all yellow-ish.
