To fade new jeans you need:
- new jeans
- washing machine
- Wash your new pair of jeans one to two times. Do a regular washing with laundry detergent. You want to remove the starch before soaking your new jeans in bleach. This will help the bleach to fade your jeans better.
- Mix bleach in the water. Fill the washing machine up with water and mix one quart of bleach to a washing machine full of water.
- Soak the new jeans in the washing machine. Let the jeans sit in the washing machine with the water and bleach for at least twenty to 30 minutes. The longer they sit, the more faded they will become.
- Allow jeans to fade to the desired color. Check the faded jeans after twenty minutes for the fade color. Once the jeans fade to the desired color, remove the new jeans from the washing machine.
- Rinse the faded jeans with fabric softener in cold water. Fabric softener will help to remove some of the bleach smell of your faded jeans. You can rinse your jeans in a bucket, bathtub or the washing machine. Dry your jeans on a clothes line in direct sunlight if possible, or just hang them to dry. Enjoy your faded new jeans.
