Project Description

Create an awesome bleach project, then post it here for us to admire!

Note: Pattern download links are in the "Teacher's Project."

Bleach (plain CHLORINE bleach, relatively new — it does get weak as it ages)
Shirt (should be at least part cotton, but a cotton/poly blend will be less likely to get damaged by the bleach)
Spray bottle
Contact Paper/Adhesive Plastic Shelf Liner (I used clear dollar store contact paper)
Pattern (make one or download mine)
Scissors or knife for cutting pattern
Paper towels
Hydrogen Peroxide to help neutralize the bleach (optional)

Safety and Such: Disposable gloves, mask to avoid breathing the bleach, goggle eye protection, and clothes you don’t care about to wear (just in case).

Work in a ventilated area, and don’t breathe in the bleach! Read and follow all the directions for any product you are using. Don’t use any materials unsafely, and don’t use them unless you are certain you can handle them safely
