Default Is Discharge Ink the Solution to White Ink Clogging?

Hey Guys, I've been speaking with Diana at Products | Unique T Shirt Printer | The Best T Shirt Printer Supplier in regards to their DTG Printer that uses Discharge Ink which is a clear liquid that turns to white ink when pressed. She guarantees The Discharge Ink does not Clog. See the Video below, let me know what you guys think about this.

Heres the Price they gave me for the discharge ink.

Discharge ink price is 130 USD per liter.
1 liter ink can print about 1000 pcs t-shirts.

Hey, I've never heard about it. Seems interesting and promising but I think there must be something what makes it not so popular.

I would be great to hear some experience how it works (color saturation, washability) etc.

Discharge will not turn to white ink. Discharge removes the dye or pigment in the shirt, returning to it's natural fiber color. If the original cotton fiber for that shirt was a light brown, then what you end up with is light brown, not white.

For testing, try applying bleach to a dark t-shirt. The remaining color will not be a white one, it will probably be a light brown.

1 liter = 1000 mls, so 1 ml per shirt, right?

Try using 1 ml of water to cover an area of 12x14 (standar image size). Do you think that makes sense?
