Discharge Printing

In screen printing, a means of printing on darkly-colored textiles in which a chemical (commonly sulfoxylate reducing agents) is applied to the image area(s) of the substrate, which lightens the color of the fabric, allowing lighter-colored inks or dyes to be printed. Also called garment discharging.
