Showing the big difference: from the original dark jeans to the faded cool.
1. Cut off the legs of your old jeans (mine's an old ukay-ukay) according to your desired length. Try them on. If it feels good then it's ready for the bleach soaking to achieve that cool faded wash.
2. Pour enough water into the basin, so the denim is totally submerged in water. Add bleach depending on how faded you want it. (I wanted it to be super faded so I poured the whole bottle into the basin.)
3. Soak for an hour or again, depending on what result you desire. (I soaked it overnight!) Be sure to flip the denim once in awhile to balance out the effect of the bleach.
4. Rinse, wash, let it dry.
Tadaaa! Goodbye old jeans, hello kickass shorts!
