Some people are even using multiple colors of Koolaid to dye the ends of their hair into a rainbow of colors. I love how it looks. Instead of trying it on my hair, I thought I try it on a pair of jeans shorts first. And instead of using dye, I used bleach, so I guess it’s really dip bleached, not dip dyed.
The first thing I did was pour bleach into a tupperware container. I used straight bleach. If you try this, you might want to do this outside or open the windows. The fumes were pretty bad. Then I just dipped the bottom of her shorts into the bleach and laid them out to dry on newspaper. This is how they looked:
Once the shorts dried, I decided that the line across the front wasn’t as even as I wanted, so she dipped them in bleach again. This time I paid more attention to the front of the shorts and made sure that they were evenly submersed in the bleach.
Round two of bleaching made the shorts even lighter on the bottom. The front line cleaned up a lot, too. I like the jagged line between the jeans color and the bleached out color. Once the shorts dried the second time, I washed them.
Don’t these look cute? I love that I found a new way to wear something old. Have you dipped any of your clothes?
