What can I do with this?

I just washed my daughter's sweatshirt it was a tad expensive "Abercrombie" what teenagers are wearing now a days, anyway this sweatshirt is white with navy blue letters with that name, it looked kind of dingy to me so I just dabbed alittle bleach with water on the dingy parts (end of sleeves and bottom of the sweatshirt) then I threw it in the delicate cycle with a cap of bleach and warm water, it came out nice but the letters came out a tad faded. but no big deal. How do I darken them again with out messing this up. Thanks for you input.

  • Oh I have been there, done that! I messed up and bought my daughter a white one that was zip up with brown letters. It was on clearance and super cheap so I got it and my other daughter a navy one. The white one is so dingy around the sleeves and looks dirty all the time. I buy a lot of stuff from that store on clearance. I just have to remember to not buy white anymore!
