How To Do Bleach Designs On Jeans

If you love the fit but are tired of the look, learn how to do bleach designs on jeans. Everyone loves a good pair of jeans, but sometimes wearing the same old pair the same way gets a little boring. One way to change up the look of your jeans is to do bleach designs on them. A way to do bleach designs on jeans is to "tie-dye" them with bleach. 

To bleach designs on your jeans this way, you'll need:

  • 1 bucket
  • water
  • bleach
  1. In a two to three gallon bucket, pour in one to two cups of bleach, then tightly twist the legs of your jeans. 
  2. Using thick, medium to large rubber bands, wrap-tie them around the legs of your jeans. You may vary the amount of ties you put on the jean legs, but at least four is optimal. You may space them out evenly or not, depending on your personal preference. Make sure the rubber bands are on tight.
  3. When you are satisfied with the placement of the rubber bands, dip the bottom section of jeans up to the rubber band into the bucket of bleach. Hold it in for ten seconds and remove. When you remove it, make sure you hold the jeans so that the bleach water isn't allowed to get other parts the jeans wet yet.  When that section has finished dripping, dip another section of jeans between rubber bands into the bleach water and repeat. This will create bleach designs on yours jeans that are much like tie-dye patterns.
  4. When you are finished dipping the jeans into the bleach water, lay them out on a plastic tarp, rubber bands still attached. Allow them to air dry. Once they're dry, remove the rubber bands to see the bleach design on your jeans.

Another way to do bleach designs on jeans is to paint on a bleach whisk pattern. Some people like the look of a whisk pattern on their lap. 

To bleach designs on your jeans this way, you'll need:

  • 1 bucket
  • water
  • bleach
  • paint brush
  1. Dip a medium paint brush into a bleach-water solution like mentioned above.
  2. Sparingly brush the bleach mixture onto the lap area (top of the thighs).  
  3. Make sure not to allow the bleach-water to puddle in droplets on the jeans so that it will maintain a natural worn look.
