How to Bleach Jeans and Update Your Look With a Trendy Floral Design
Hey, everyone! You all know I love to do a lot of décor items, but every once in a while I get into my wardrobe, and I alter it a bit. This is such an easy DIY and you can do it with pants, shorts, a skirt, or really anything. I think it looks really cool on the jeans, so today I’m going to show you how I transformed an old pair of jeans into a fun, funky, and fresh new pair that’s totally trendy right now. Let’s get started!
Tools and materials:
1. Bleaching jeans
I’m using Clorox bleach for this DIY as I found it to be a little bit thicker than a liquid bleach, so it’s got a nice consistency to paint with. All I’m doing is taking a paintbrush, dipping it in the bleach, and painting out the flowers. I just freehanded it, but if you want perfect flowers, you might want to draw them on with chalk first because the bleach doesn’t work instantly and you will need to allow it to sit for a little while to see exactly where the bleach has sunk into the jeans.
Some of mine ended up blending together and I didn’t necessarily love the effect, so I think the best way to do this is with a bit of chalk and outline it. The way to get that really bright white bleach is to just simply go in with a couple of layers. Most of the flowers I did were layered about three times with bleach.
2. Wash jeans
Once you’ve allowed it to sit overnight, you can go ahead and wash the jeans. I don’t suggest putting anything else in the wash that you care about in case there’s any bleach leakage.

Does the full strength bleach eat thru the fibres of the jeans?
