Thickener for bleach
  • Would any of the thickeners for dye work to thicken bleach solution?
  • Traditional dye thickeners are not used to thicken bleach as it makes them break down quickly.

    Jacquard makes a thickener specifically for bleach applications on textiles; it's simply called Bleach Thickener. I'm sorry, but I cannot find a link for it on their website. Dharma Trading is one reliable supplier that carries it : http://www.dharmatrading.com/html/eng/694405-AA.shtml

    Are you trying to discharge dye from fabric or using the bleach for something else? If you're looking to discharge dye from fabric, you can mix dishwasher gel with fabric. It thickens the bleach and doesn't hurt the fabric.
