I've been trying to bleach mine all week, and it wasn't working, til I tried this.
Ok, First heat the water, really hot, close to boiling. Then pour it into a container.
Add the rit dye remover and mix it with the water you poured into the container. -(I did this because I didn't want to pour the dye remover into my cooking pot..lol)
Next get a q-tip or better yet the cotton cosmetic applicators. They sell them in CVS. They look like q-tips on one end and they are pointy q-tips on the other end. -(less cotton will come off while you work).
Then dip the q-tip in the mixture and apply it underneath the lace-(dabbing motions). Make sure you don't turn the wig up-side down. hold it right side up and apply the q-tip.
As you look down at it. you will see the knots and lace-(it if is colored) start to get lighter.
When the desired effect is achieved, press the area with a damp towel or rag. To stop the lightening process.
Do this in small sections-(areas) starting at the edge of the wig.
It takes a lil time, but you can see it change as you dab it and you minimize the amount of remover that you get on the roots but keeping the wig upright.
