Dyeing a Slipcover White?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: I have the perfect slipcover for the chair in my nursery. Unfortunately it is sage green which does NOT 'go'. I would love to dye the slipcover white and was thinking I could bleach it. It is a cotton/poly blend. I know that generally polyester is colorfast, but is there even a chance it could work? And if so, how would I go about doing it?
