    It is wonderful. Where do you get decolorant. Will the Rit color remover work. It is a powder. I saw this on PBS but didn't see the very beginning and was interrupted by my husband. Do you rinse out the decolorant. So many questions, any hope of a tute?

    You can actually use liquid dishwasher detergent to do this with, I used to see someone do this on a craft show that used to be on the old HGTV.

    I paint flowers over my shirt stains or embroidery over them.
