I can confirm - that's a "yes". I have a whole set of towels and washcloths from my BP days that look like they've been tie-dyed from 2.5% BP!

I like crisp, white towels and sheets so I haven't noticed. Actually, I bought them because I knew that they'd get bleached otherwise. 2.5% can definitely bleach your stuff, but I haven't had a problem with it bleaching my clothes at all.

If you're careful, it's not a big problem. Dry your face withy junky towels, use white pillowcases, and make sure the BP is very very dry (and that your face hasn't just been freshly moisturized) before you pull on a shirt, or just put the shirt on AFTER you wash but before you apply BP. The only things of mine that have become at all obviously bleached are the towels I use to dry my face, shirts that I've worn while washing my face (since the leftover BP on your skin can run off a bit onto your collar), and a turtleneck sweater.
