Right. Brilliant. I wanted to lighten the color of a very dark purple dress, where the red half of the purple hadn't set enough, I guess. As a result, after TWO rounds of bleach, I now have a dark purple dress, 6 pink camisoles, 6 pink panties, 3 pink long-sleeved shirts, 2 pink skirts, 1 pink-and-sea-green skirt, 1 pink-and-blue sarong, and a pile of pink household towels, napkins, and other assorted bits of cloth.
Tomorrow I'm going to the craft store to acquire dye, with which to hopefully turn most of these some more pleasing color[s].
