    You don't.

    Chlorine can do two kinds of damage to fabric. It can remove the dye, leaving pale spots. The only way to fix that is to re-dye the spot or the whole garment, neither of which has a good chance of making it look like the damage never happened.

    If you use way too much bleach or leave clothes in it too long, it can eat away the fabric. It's the same effect as when clothes simply wear out from age. The fabric gets thin and weak. If it's only in a few places, as happens when clothes get worn out only in one or two places, it could be patched or mended, but bleach damage usually affects a whole garment and there's little point in patching or mending because the whole thing is weak.

    Can't be done. Chlorine is bleach so any damage is permanent.
