Here's a great way to add something different to your jeans:


  1. Plan ahead. This is a pretty "rapid" procedure with a few extra steps. You'll need to have your technique down.
  2. Set up this project outdoors.
  3. Gather your jeans, a bleach pen, rough brush, rubber gloves, apron, clothespins and water hose. Bring them over to the clothesline.
  4. Place your materials on a grassy area.
  5. Soak your jeans with the hose and wring them out fairly well.
  6. Put numerous folds in your jeans. Fold them vertically, horizontally or scrunch them into a random shape. Creases will not be reached as thoroughly by the bleach.
  7. Put on the rubber gloves and apron.
  8. Using the bleach pen, streak the jeans in a random, whisking motion.
  9. Using a rough brush, gently pull through the lines. Pull vertically, horizontally or randomly.
  10. Unfold the jeans and pin them "quickly" onto the clothesline. Bleach needs to be rinsed within three minutes of its application, to stop the bleaching process.
  11. Rinse the jeans thoroughly with the water hose.
  12. Repeat the process, if desired.
  13. Let your jeans dry in the sun to enhance the fading process.


  • Bleach is biodegradable.
  • Try using slightly diluted bleach in a glass jar. Whisk with a child's paintbrush.
  • Omit soaking the jeans, at the beginning of the procedure, or using the rough brush for different effects.


  • Never mix bleach with ammonia or vinegar!
  • Use caution with liquid bleach.
