TRY IT DIP AND DYE IT # PART TWO



Have you tired of your old short and want something new, here is a DIY from The Juicy Couture that anyone can do and the result is pretty nice.

What you’ll need:
Clorox Bleach
2 buckets (one for the bleach, one for water)
Heavy duty gloves (you don’t want to mess with bleach without them!)
Whatever denim item you’re dipping (we’re using shorts)
A hanger or yard stick (you can stick the yard stick through the belt holes to hold the shorts over the bucket)
Instructions:
1. Mix two parts water, one part bleach in a bucket. Fill the other bucket with water.
2. Dip your item into the bleach. Keep your eyes on it and remove the item when you’re satisfied, roughly 5-15 minutes. *Note that lighter colors will bleach faster and that the bleach continues to climb (approx. 2 inches) beyond where it appears to have dyed.
3. Transfer the item directly into water bucket, then rinse in cold water in the bathtub or sink. Run though the laundry (also on cold, without other items in the load) and enjoy!
