0:01 I'm at Deluxe a local resale clothing store where we also have local designers fashions
0:07 and where we also do redesign and alterations. And right now I'm going to show you how to
0:13 cover some bleach spots with permanent markers. So black is usually the easiest on black.
0:23 I know there's many different shades of black so what you want to do is put less on rather
0:29 than more. And I'm just going to show you, say this is a meandering, from the design,
0:35 bleach spot, so what I'm going to do is put it on my finger and just barely touch the
0:41 surface with my black marker. And then if it blends in at first that's fine. Just don't
0:46 put too much on because then it would make the spot darker. So I'm using kind of the
0:50 edge of that marker. And I've got it where I want it. That is, it's a little darker so
0:59 let me go for this other one down here where we're just going to barely, barely cover.
1:07 I'm using the edges of my marker to kind of blend it in by layers so I can get it just
1:13 where I want it. And I think I'm going to leave that one like that. It's a little lighter
1:18 but it blends in very nicely. Now this other one. Permanent markers come in different colors
1:26 now too, so this is an experimental one. I bleached this spot out of this green piece
1:32 of fabric and obviously you can't get all different colors of green markers so this
1:36 totally experimental. It may or may not work. So this is new for me, too, but what I'm going
1:40 to try to do is use the long edge of this rather than the tip. And I'm going to try
1:46 to feather this a little bit. You want less rather than more. And you just start out real
1:52 lightly. Just barely touching it and feathering it kind of out from the bleach spot. You can
1:58 do it in both directions to kind of get it to go blend in to the color that's already
2:04 there. I'm not going to do this real dark because it'll have a totally different color
2:08 green but I just wanted to blend that white part in a little bit. And you can just feather
2:14 it in as much or as little as you want. And, again, there's all different colors of permanent
2:22 markers for all different fabrics. What it'll do is take out that white blaring spot. So
2:28 even if you don't get it totally blended to the exact color you're taking out the glaring
2:34 white of the bleach spot. And I think I'm just going to leave it right there to show
2:41 you kind of how to blend in so it's a little more disguised. Because it is experimental.
2:51 And that's how we take care of fixing bleach spots in fabrics.
