HOW TO DISTRESS YOUR OWN JEANS



There are a number of sites that provide a step-by-step approach to distress your own jeans. Many recommend using bleach to distress your own jeans; there are others who recommend the use of the milder dishwashing liquid.



When using bleaching liquid to distress your own jeans, do take note of the following:



· Make sure you wear rubber gloves and put on an apron as bleach burns!



· Be careful of bleach with ammonia as it has a choking smell and may irritates your nose



· Bleach whitens everything!, use carefully and not let it splash on parts of the jeans you don’t want to fade



· Put your bottle of bleach on a thick layer of newspapers or piece of plastic sheet, away from your plants, carpets and anything that you don’t want to get bleached



· Bleaching jeans in enclosed area is not recommended due to the obnoxious smell & fumes



· Do not wash your freshly bleached jeans together with colored fabrics.



Dishwashing liquid may be a better alternative to bleach for distressing jeans as it is less corrosive and don’t completely distress your jeans. Nevertheless, you should also take the same precautions [as recommended for bleaching].



So, how do you distress your jeans? Follow the simple 9-steps guide below to distress your own jeans:



(1) Lay your jeans on a large piece of plastic sheet



(2) Use an utility knife to cut desired areas of your jeans [eg. areas correspond to the knee, hemlines]



(3) Sandpaper the cut area until you see the cords



(4) Pour dishwashing liquid [choose the non-colored type] onto a piece of cotton cloth and dab the liquid on areas you want the faded look [you may also use a paint brush to create the sweeping effect]



(5) Let the liquid seat on the jeans for 1 hour



(6) Dip your jeans into fabric softener liquid until it is completely soaked with the liquid



(7) Wash your jeans in hot water together with a pair of old shoes made of coarse fabric, and tumble dry



(8) Repeat step (1) to (7), if desired.



(9) Sparingly splash some paint or dye on the jeans for that rugged look [optional].



I did this myself... if workks very very well , hope i helpd
