Removing color is always magical. After years working with chemical color removing of commercial dyes, I have been experimenting with removing indigo using shibori and direct application using potassium permanganate. With the addition of tannin, shades of tan and brown can be achieved.
Other natural dye colors may be removed with citric acid and even lemon juice.
