With that said, I've been dying to do something with an old pair of hollister jeggings. The color had faded tremendously and they looked super old. So I decided that I would do something easy and just bleach them. However I really didn't want another pair of white jeans.
May I present the new and improved, cream hollister jeans:
(super cute right!?)
I'm so in love with the final product I just had to share! Here's what I did:
-I started by filling the bath tub with hot water and a half a gallon of bleach. I bleached jeans before when I was younger with my mom, and if I remember correctly, the color began to change right away. That wasn't the case this time...
(the bath tub phase)
-They just did not want fade, at all whatsoever. I left them in there while I went out and did errands. I also picked up some more bleach just in case. I came home, and still nothing. So then I poured in the entire bottle of bleach...still nothing.
-I was like what the hell is going on!? So I was going to admit defeat about three hours later, but my mother and I decided to move them from the bath tub to a bucket. We scooped out the bleach with a cup and filled the bucket and tossed the jeans.
-I came to check on them a little while later and low and behold! Finally they looked a little lighter. So I left them in there for the rest of the day (This process started around 12 pm). I checked on them around 10 pm and they were this beautiful cream color and I was overjoyed!
-I took them out and empty the bucket and rinsed it a few times and filled it with water. I also put some fabric softener in to help get rid of the smell of bleach and left them in overnight.
-They were washed and hung-dried the next day, thus the final product was created!
(voila! I can't wait til summer and sandals in these babies!)
Keep it trendy guys!
