I bought a lace beach wedding dress and now that I'm not getting married on a beach due to Covid I ordered an overskirt. The overskirt is satin. They are two different colours of white.The skirt is a bright white. Can I use bleach or a non bleaching whitening laundry product to brighten it up to match?
This dress is probably at least part polyester and, no matter what is usually said, polyester rarely turns out the way you want it to when trying to change the 'color'.
Unfortunately, this all depends on the fiber content of the dress and skirt fabric. Bleach and bleach-type products only work on natural fibers, like linen and cotton, since they are porous and can release their color. It sounds like your garments are probably synthetic fibers. These have the color chemically added when the fiber is made, which is why it is so hard to alter the color.
My wedding dress is just a regular dress that was white lace on top of a beige slip, I got the slip changed to white so it would be more bridal. It is attached to the dress. I'd like the lace to be whiter to fit better with the rest of my accessories and the super white slip.Right now it's an awkward egg shell colour. How can I get the lace dress whiter without ruining the attached slip? I have a whitening powder, can I use that?
I believe you should look at the worse case scenario - what if trying to whiten this dress completely ruins it? What will your options be if you cannot wear this dress?
