How do I get rid of a bleach spot about the size of a peanut on a blue sweater?

Good and bad news. The bad news: You can't get a bleach spot out, because the bleach removes the color.

The good news: Perhaps you can find some fabric paint or dye that matches, and try to make a careful touch-up.

(If using paint, make sure it's the thin kind that doesn't dry stiff.) Depending on the location of the bleached-out spot, you might also be able to cover it with a pin, or some sort of applique, which would be far easier than trying to match the color with paint/dye. I hope this helps! (02/19/2010)

If the spot is small you might be able to match the color with a permanent magic marker. It won't work if the spot is large. (02/19/2010)

When this happens, I sometimes use a marker of the same color to fill in the bleach spot. Sometimes it looks ok, but it never looks like it did before the bleach. It's ok for the dog park though. (02/19/2010)
