What is "neat bleach"? I googled it and assume it's just straight bleach. Is that right? I have some Peter Parker pants with red staining that I want to remove...

^^ Toilet bleach?… like the blue gel you squeeze into the bowl and scrub?

Whatever you used produced amazing results! Specific product would be great to know.

Wow what a difference, looks great. I’ll have to keep this tip trick in mind, if I pick up marker stained Trek shirts cheap.

im in the uk and this is the product i used just a generic thick clear gel household bleach ,clear not blue

with it being gel ,it does spread but is a little more controllable as to where you put it ,but honestly id didn't pay much for the suit and didn't expect it to work ,and had more or less given up on it so i wasn't super careful about how i put the bleach on or washed it off ,and it made no detrimental impact on the red parts at all ,no one was more surprised than me when it worked lol ,id give it a try on if you have one a old ratty garment you could mark up with a similar stain to the one you're trying to remove to start with and go from there

ok ive just noticed looking at my pictures again ,you can see the effect of the bleach on the treated sleeve as its bleached the stitching white from the yellow it was originally ,not a deal breaker to me but worth pointing out i thought

No Problem. A dab of color marker to the now white stitching will conceal it. Great tip thanks for sharing!!!
