A couple weeks ago I was trying to find something to do with my favorite pair of shorts. They are longer than most hoochy shorts that stores sell, but when I checked a few months ago at Kohl's, they didn't have the same SO brand as when I bought them. I have had them for over two years, but since I wore them all the time they have little rips and a couple bigger holes in them, and I know I would regret it if I throw them away. Plus I also don't want to spend money on new jean shorts.
this website and it's taken me a total of an hour so far, between bleaching, rinsing, washing and drying. Not bad. It turned out looking a little like cow hide designs, I think, which is fine. For my favorite shorts, instead of dunking them in the bowl like the dark ones, I used a toothbrush to splatter different areas, then scrubbed bleach into certain areas that looked dirty before and also onto the back pockets.
