BP, sports and clothes

Recommended Posts


Not sure if this is the right forum for this post.

I used BP a number of years ago, but found that all my clothes were bleached - usually around the neck of T-Shirts and jumpers etc. This happened even when I was super careful about applying it and waited until it was totally dry before putting my clothes on.

I think a lot of the problem was sweat: as a student I rode my bike everywhere. Nowadays, I stil do a lot of exercise, but at least I go to the gym and wear separate clothes to those I wear at work etc.

I plan to start using Dan's regimen and have ordered some BP. I am concerned that I am going to bleach my clothes again.

Does anyone have any experience of this problem and how have they managed it?

I've never actually had a problem with BP bleaching the collars of shirts I work out in, and I sweat a lot, though I'm sure it happens to other people. The biggest culprit for bleaching shirts, in my experience, is washing my face with the shirt on, since even if I am careful I still have some water running down my neck. Wearing light shirts or no shirt while you wash your face and working out in junky clothes will probably be good enough, I think. The only shirt whose collar has bleached a little that wasn't from washing my face was a turtleneck sweater, so that's to be expected, I guess.
