Well Hoadie,

How about bleaching a tan or a blue  sling white? Maybe not. I am unsure on how bleach reacts with brass?

We need a good chemist  to ask on that one.

Try a search for "Parade sling" instead of "white sling"

Brass will turn black if you get bleach on it.  Try some good old fashioned white BLANCO!

Hey Hoadie,

How about leaving a sling out in the sun to have the sun bleach it white?

Gentlemen... there are many dedicated sites on which to find the Enfield Rifle Webbing Parade Sling... IMA (International Military Antiques), Ebay, MHA (Military History Workshop), Gunbroker.com, Auctionarms, Sportsmans Guide, Numrich Gun Parts... just to name a few. Blanco works if applied correctly, then it will not stain any clothing. The other alternative is to use a reputable material dye.
