DIY: Bleach Pen Tees/tanks

I made these tanks and tees before The Wedding, and apparently never posted the DIY!!

So for your DIYing pleasure…

DIY: Bleach Pen Tees/Tanks

What ya need:

  • Tees/Tanks
  • Clorox Bleach Pen, or bleach mixture
  • Cardboard
  • Wax paper
  • Timer


To get started, tape some wax paper onto the cardboard


Then slip that into the tee or tank, to prevent the bleach from bleeding through to the other side


Then PRACTICE. Because once you write on the tee…it’s permanent.


And since I tend to be a bit lopsided in my writing, I used a bit of masking tape as a guideline.


Then I wrote out my word…


And set the timer. I started out at 10 minutes.



Then I checked it, on the underside you’ll get a better idea of how far the bleach has progressed. So gently lift up the end of the tee and peek at the inside. I wanted it a bit lighter so I set the timer for an additional 5 minutes.


Then when you get the desired results, rinse carefully with cold water until all of the bleach is out.

I also made a few more….one for me and one for my MOH!



Plus this Tiffany inspired ring tee.


I washed them all in the machine with some towels just in case there was a little bleach still active, but there wasn’t. They turned out so great!


Now I need to make some that are maternity inspired!!
