Acid-wash jeans were a popular 1980s fashion, and have come in and out of fashion ever since. Manufactured acid-wash jeans can be hard to find and tend to be unfashionably cut. Save yourself time and money by acid washing a pair of jeans you already own using laundry bleach. Get even more creative by using the same technique to create acid-washed cotton shorts, T-shirts and accessories.

Lay the jeans flat on a protected table or on the floor. Crumple or make folds in the jeans and secure with rubber bands to create a tie-dye-like affect during bleaching. Alternatively, leave the jeans unfolded to create a more solid pattern.
Pour 1 gallon water and 3 cups bleach into a bucket and stir. Place the jeans in the bucket.
Soak the jeans until you reach the desired colour.
Remove the jeans from the bucket and wash alone with warm water.
