[ANON POST] Bleaching a Corpse

Search terms: bleaching a corpse, turning a corpse white, bleaching hair and skin, variations thereof. Turned up a lot of costuming suggestions.

Setting: Dystopic near-future London.

My characters, currently living underground, need to turn the skin and hair of a few corpses as white as possible. The effect doesn't need to be perfect; it just needs to hold up at a distance. I've found a number of articles about what happens to a living person's hair and skin if you bleach it, but naturally, I couldn't find anything about what happens if you do it with an already dead body.

Would dumping the bodies in a vat of bleach actually work? Is there a more effective/dramatic way? Said characters have access to some resources, but not much.
