I have a 100% viscose romper that is an medium olive green color. I am wondering if it is possible to make it white with bleach?

It would not work and you would ruin this synthetic fabric.

You could switch to another colour but bleach is too harsh. Here is a guide:

Extremely unlikely. Likely to wind up with a blotchy mess

i believe you have received your answer - looks like a resounding NO is what responders are saying.


Perhaps there is a better solution - have you thought of dying your romper a different color? Maybe a darker green or even black? Viscose fabric is very difficult to work with (even Rit Company says this) and you really have to follow any instructions very closely or there could be a disaster and just ruin the garment beyond repair (even tearing of the garment to shreds if handled incorrectly).

If you are set on trying to remove the color (it will never be white) then maybe you should read the Rit instructions.

But - if you want to consider dying your romper then here is a good site to read:

Here are some comments from people who are considered experts in the dying field:
Viscose is Rayon and so it works best with Procion and Idye natural in that order. Procion is fiber reactive so it will be slightly brighter and will be more washfast over time.


Viscose rayon is dyed just like cotton, with the same dyes, but it is much more fragile when wet, so you must treat it very gently.
If you use a good dye, you can easily change the color of a green dress to black, but the stitching may/will remain the original color. Would this look okay on your dress? Ready-made clothing is sewn together with polyester thread, which cannot be dyed with ordinary dye.
