There are multiple ways to bleach out jeans. The two that I used were:
- Washing machine: add two to three cups bleach, throw jeans in, then fill with hot water until pants are covered. Allow to sit and stir occasionally for about 15 minutes, then allow the washing cycle to finish through.
- Sink: add two to three cups bleach, add hot water until sink is filled 3/4 full, allow mixture to sit for a few minutes, then add jeans. Allow to soak for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain, then rinse in water so jeans do not continue to bleach. Transfer to washing machine, and wash.
- Always wear gloves!!!
- Be aware of the smell and wear a mask or even better, use the washing machine.
- Be sure to wash bleach out before dyeing.
To dye your bleached jeans, follow the directions on the dye packet of your choice (this part is the easiest!).
Ok, awesome people!! Get to dyeing and have a beautiful Wednesday!
