    thanks for the reply! I did see that website when I was googling.. but it doesn't specifically say whether it might blanch.. I would think the answer is no but I need to be sure... long story.. LOL

    DTI will not blanch

    Think about blanching itself. What is blanching? You put pressure that displaces the blood and when you let go the blood rushes back. With a DTI the skin is already discolored and unblanchable.
