Yeah so as I expected. No change in color from washing. Off to the store for some fading supplies.
Looks like the only option is washing or fading over time. I’m content with that as I don’t think the grey is bad.So bleach makes this jacket yellow. I tested a small portion of it on the inside where it's not noticeable unless you know where it is. So that's a no go.
Potassium Permanganate is probably a better option if you can get a hold of some. It's what denim companies use.I tested some hydrogen peroxide on a pair of old jeans and I see no difference at all. I might have to go a step beyond and use bleach. Just not sure how much to use.
How would one go about applying Potassium Permanganate? Quick search says it's a powder.Potassium Permanganate is probably a better option if you can get a hold of some. It's what denim companies use.
You could also try UV exposure while the hydrogen peroxide is on it... or a higher concentration of hydrogen peroxide.
Right. I did more searching after my last comment and a liquid form for purchase does exist. $23 for 500ml. Im not sure if I have the knowledge and skill to use this product but if I get annoyed at how dark the jacket is enough I might just try it.Mix it down with water from what I've been told. But verify that and test it on something other than the jacket if you do try it.
