Bleaching fabric

Sometimes does not work.

It's the first time I have tried to lighten fabric and decided to use the bleach.  Before starting I read some instructions on the internet, placed each fabric colour in a separate mixture of warm water and bleach for several minutes.  

Here they are, can you tell the difference?  

No.  Neither can I.  

Do you have any suggestions for future attempts?

I've always been iffy about bleach after one of my Mum's dresses went from kharki green to a yellow. Very unpredicted!

I have read about people taking a pale fabric dividing it into batches and dying them in successively weaker batches of dye to get graduation of colour. I think Dylon do a pre colouring something which makes the dye take better. Would that help with the bleaching process?
