Synonyms of "Bleach" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre bleach e decolor ?
A: They CAN both mean the same thing if you use it like:
"The color of my red shirt got bleached, now it just looks white"
"My red shirt got decolored, now it just looks white"

But "Bleach" can also refer to the chemical, 漂白水.

The nuance is, if you say "bleached", usually you mean something got in contact with 漂白水 and lost its color.

"decolor" just means it lost its color.

That being said, sometimes we do use "bleached" even if something doesn't use 漂白. So the nuance is not SUPER strong.

I think "Bleached" is a more common word than "decolored"
