have you stopped using? Bleaching?

Recommended Posts

So Ive done the regimen for about 6 months and well it works. Im just tired of the bleaching of my clothes. Its not all the time, but I notice every once in a while there is bleach spots on my clothes. I know its from the regimen.

Has anyone quit before because of the bleaching?

I got a new shirt and next thing I knew there was a bleach spot on it. Im was so mad :( Theres also bleaching around the necks of my shirts.

Q: What can I do to help prevent BP from bleaching my stuff?

A: The fact that BP bleaches fabric is in my opinion its biggest drawback. Sometimes there's not a lot you can do about it. However, these tips may help:

  • Wash and dry hands thoroughly after handling benzoyl peroxide.
  • Do not rub sweat from your face on your clothing.
  • Put your clothes on first, then apply BP. If you apply BP first and then put on your clothes, hold your shirt neck holes open wide while pulling them so they don't touch the face. Do the same when removing your shirts.
  • Use white towels.
  • Wear a white t-shirt under clothing if you are treating your back/chest with BP.
  • Dab sweat off with a clean dry towel to avoid run-off onto clothing.
  • Take your shirt off before washing your face in the sink so the wash water doesn't get splashed onto your shirt by accident.
  • When washing at the sink, if you have a carpeted bathroom, place a towel under your feet to catch any drips that may fall while you are washing.
  • Use white pillowcases and sheets. In a pinch, an old t-shirt can also be used as a pillowcase.

I'm tempted to try and using BP only at night, but I have very oily skin and if I don't use BP during the day what alternative should I use to keep it from oiling up. Also, I sweat a lot because it's like 95 everyday here.......any ways to prevent sweating? :think:

I don't really need to use moisturizer for my skin. I pretty much just use BP only and have been doing so for about 2 years now. I too am tired of ruing all my clothes.

This is actually pretty funny because I couldn't understand why a couple of my tshirts got bleached then I remembered the BP. It doesn't happen to me that often since I'm not treating the back of my neck.

But yes - You will need to choose either your skin or your clothes ^^.
