First I filled the bathtub with 3 inches of water. I dumped in about 8 cups of bleach. I’m not sure what I expected, but after an hour NOTHING had happened. I put a pair of my jeans….
…and dumped in the rest of the bottle of bleach. After 2 hours they were slightly lighter. I didn’t have much hope for the project. I decided to leave it overnight.
I went to bed and when I woke up in the morning…WHITE JEANS! Yippee!!!
I’ll be honest, I was going for bright red jeans. I used “scarlet” RIT dye and kept it in for an hour.
When the jeans came out of the wash they were this lovely coral color. (I guess, since they’re boy jeans, we’ll call them “salmon”.) I cut off the bottoms and left them raw. I wanted them to be preppy but not too girly.
