I was sick of my only pair of skinny jeans looking faded and making me feel less than skinny. Black is slimming! Grey, not so much. So into the dye they went!
This may be one of my easiest DIY posts to date. Even if you’ve never journeyed into the wonderful world of tie-dye, you can figure this one out.
- Faded jeans
- Clothes Dye (I’ve had good experiences with RIT dye, but this time I used Tulip.
- Very hot water
Follow the dye manufacturer’s instructions since they may vary by brand, but check out the hints below.
Hint: I get the water even hotter than the package recommends. I don’t think water from the sink is hot enough to make the dye dark enough. I actually get the water to a very light simmer on the stove, then put in the dye and stir, stir, stir!
Also: Don’t wear anything you even remotely like when dyeing clothes. It may splash on you and it will never come out– that’s the point!
Have you ever dyed clothing?
