An excellent starting point for what you want to do (which is called "discharge dyeing", BTW) is Paula Burch's website http://www.pburch.net/dyeing.shtml She's got TONS of useful information about hand dyeing of all kinds: search on "discharge" to find the bits related to bleach techniques. Her Q&A blog is very good, too.
