Hi, from what I understand, BP bleaches clothing/fabrics when they come into contact with water. Water + BP = hydrogen peroxide = causes bleaching.
So, if you simply put dry BP on something and it never gets wet, it won't bleach. Is that right? I've noticed my clothes don't bleach until they get wet-- like throwing them in the washing machine, getting sweat on my face, etc.
Long story short-- I have a nice shirt that undoubtedly has some "dry BP" on it around the collar. I am afraid that when I throw it in the washing machine it will bleach out! Is there a way to minimize/prevent this? Is it possible to neutralize the dry BP before getting it wet so the hydrogen peroxide reaction doesn't occur?
Thank you so much
