  • You cant get a bleach "spot" out because its not a spot...the bleach takes the color out of the fabric. You just need to be more careful in the future when pouring your bleach. Keep your color clothes away from the area. Another suggestion is to start using color safe bleach additives instead of chlorine bleach.

  • You can't =( Even if you dye your jeans black the spot will still be lighter.

  • Did you mean you were wearing the black pants at the time it happened? You just have to be careful or not wear things that can be damaged when you pour bleach.

  • Dye them a few times until it disappears.

  • Dye them tot take a black permanent marker to it for a temporary fix.

  • A black permanent marker is the best bet. It probably will not be perfect but it should help. I do that all the time. You might try using oxyclean instead of chlorine bleach.

  • I have a black fabric "painting" marker just for problems like this. You can get it at a fabric/craft store. For a quick fix use a black marker.

  • Write off the jeans as a lesson learned. That isn't a bleach "stain", bleach has no color & doesn't cause stains, it removes color and it will have weakened the fabric. There's a very good chance that the spot will soon be a hole.
