to bleach whisker line creases on a pair of jeans
Do you or your
daughter want the trendy crease marks on the tops of a pair
jeans? Instead of buying a new pair, why not give your old
pair of jeans a new look by adding your own crease lines?
For this craft,
you need bleach and water as well as some plastic to keep
the bleach from soaking through to the back of the pair of
jeans. A piece of cardboard in a Ziploc bag works well, because
you can feel the cardboard there.
In a small container,
mix one part bleach to one part water. The easiest way to
do this is to simply mix 1 cup of bleach with one couple water
and give it a quick stir. Place the cardboard and a washed
pair of jeans, underneath where the whisker lines will be.
Fold the jeans over a few times, where the natural crease
would be when someone is sitting. Using a sponge, get one
part into the bleach solution, then rub it along the folded
creases, ensuring that the liquid is penetrating the creases.
Continue until all the creases are done.
Allow the bleach
to set for about 15 minutes on the jeans, or until you have
the desired bleached creases look. Time will vary depending
on the thickness of the denim as well as the starting color
of the denim, so be sure to watch it carefully throughout
the entire 15 minutes waiting process.
Next, in a larger
bowl of 10 cups of water and 2 cups of vinegar, drop the entire
pair jeans into the bowl, to stop the bleaching process. Swish
them around for a few minutes, ensuring it is penetrating
the crease area then let sit in the mixture for five minutes.
Now wash and dry like usual, and now your new jeans are ready
