    If you know anybody in the chemical trade, you'll need Sodium Formaldehyde Sulphoxylate, Formic Acid and H202.
    Boil your suit in 8grams per litre SFS and 3 grams per litre FA.
    After a couple of hours you should be somewhere near to white (all the dye should be destroyed if its a good suit (dry clean only is a good sign)).
    When your happy, add a little H202 (32gpl) and keep at 60oc for an hour.

    Just seen how old this thread is but it might be useful anway

    The cotton stitching/lining will be damaged however, so keep an eye on it!

    Welcome. Interesting first post...

    So this is actually more of a way to bleach and destroy a suit? If I ever need to destroy my suit and have the remains bleached I now know how to do it.:shrug:
