White is the easiest to bleach?

its so their boss can see how hard they've been working by how much their overalls are stained

Couldn't they just cheat the system and dump a bunch of paint all over themselves then?

Wouldn't their employers be peeved because they have wasted paint by getting it on themselves instead of on what they were painting?

It's because they all have competitions who can get the least paint of them on a day. The winner wins a free paintbrush. White is the easiest colour to tell if there is paint or not!

‘Cause it makes their outfits look cool to be spattered with paint!
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 8/6/02 - 5:18:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
you guys are right, its so that they can just bleach out all the colors!!! i knew that!

Or maybe it's so they can see where paint is splattered on them, so they know not to lean on a white wall if they have green paint on their legs. Or scratch their chest if there is paint there, because it'll get all over the place. Or maybe the bleach thing, but I think it looks neat with the splatters!

Paint doesn't come out with bleach.
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 9/16/02 - 5:04:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
its usually cause its just the cheapest to buy and because its just going to get ruined anyway, it doesn't matter.
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 9/16/02 - 5:22:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
Because white goes with everything, including paint spills!
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 9/16/02 - 5:26:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well, imagine paint spills all over something purple or pink. That would look bad.
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 10/6/02 - 1:34:36 AM EST (GMT-5)
because when they GO to work, the outfits are horrible, but when they get off of work , they wanna look pretty
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 10/6/02 - 2:20:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
so, the paint doesn't stain
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 10/6/02 - 3:16:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
They wanna look neat and clean.. or maybe they were forced to wear white by their bosses.. pay $1 for every dab of paint you stain on the white shirt! heheheh, nah.

Long ago, "white washing" was popular. Tombs, homes, finces, and etc. were all white washed (i.e. white paint). People looking for jobs could always earn quick wages by painting for property owners or those who could no longer care for their relatives in the grave yards. Thus, the white clothing to hide the white paint. The white uniforms are left over from the tradition.
