I picked up a couple of these from the local disc diver today. One of them is tan and the other is a lovely brown. Basically, they're going to be invisible the moment they leave the fairway. Anybody got any good ideas on how to make them brighter? They also smell like algae which is quite nice.
I'm not concerned with appearance at all, only visibility.

It's probably important to note that I've never even attempted to dye a disc before.

From what I can tell, you can't make a disc brighter. Any dyes are dependent on the original color, in which case you're screwed on the brown. The tan might work if you dyed like blue or something on it, depends on how tan it is

What I had in mind would be possibly bleaching them to white and going from there. Will bleach do anything?

I've never bleached a disc. It sounds like those aren't really precious discs, so you should give it a try and see if it ruins the plastic. It could work.

Otherwise, you should just leave them in the sun, which should bleach them a little bit naturally. You definitely can't stick the disc in dye and make it brighter, though.
