AAAAAAAAGGGGHHHHH. Just ruined my favourite Whistles jumper by splashing bleach on it in two places. It changed the colour immediately. Nothing I can do about it.
Does anybody know where I could possibly replace it. I bought it at the end of Last Summer. It is a navy ribbed pattern with 3/4 sleeves and a zip that runs right down the back. I know this si a long shot, but I am so upset!

No advice but lots of sympathy. I am very attached to my clothes and get upset when something gets ruined. But you will recover... smile

Top tip - never use any serious cleaning products unless wearing old clothes.

I know. I'm usually so careful. It happened last night. Shouldn't have had that extra glass of wine!!

Could you fill in the bleached bits with a navy sharpie? It won't look perfect but might be better. I've done this a few times.

Might be worth contacting Whistles directly, they sometimes have random pieces from past seasons in their sale section of the website. ASOS also have past season stuff sometimes.

What's it made of? If it's cotton, you could try using Dylon dye stripper to remove all the colour, then re-dying it with a Dylon machine dye.

I had a similar incident with a yellow cotton jumper, so i threw beach all over it and it looks like it is meant to be!
