Using tea to dye clothes can give them a vintage look. To make jeans appear older and more worn, use tea to add a yellow shade to the denim. If you have rips or light spots on the jeans, it will turn those darker as well, adding to the vintage look. Dyeing with tea is a simple and inexpensive way to add interest to a pair of jeans.
