For two pairs of jeans I used 1 packet of Dylon 500g salt (£1.49) and two packs of Dylon Velvet Black Fabric Dye for Machine Use (£3.45pp)
First of all I washed the jeans in warm water - This made sure they were soacked through and ready for the dye. Then I read the instructions... seems simple but just do it.
MAKE SURE YOU WEAR PROTECTIVE GLOVES!!! This dye is harmful so please take the advised precautions if you try this at home.
Pour the salt and both packets of dye into the washing machine making sure not to get any on the floor!
Turn the machine to the cycle as stated on the packet - make sure to check the instructions on this varies for different machines so check and double check before turning that baby on.
Then wait and watch your jeans turn back to black! Simple!
Put them out to dry on the washing line if you can as the drips that came off my jeans were still laced with dye so it saved me ruining the floor. The dye is still a little loose the first time you wash them again after dying so just wash with other black things and voila - fabulous black jeans :)
And as documented, the finished result..... back to black!!!
This has really inspired me to do more with my current wardrobe it update it so you may see some more DIY / Dye transformations soon.
Do you have any amazing jeans? Let me know so I can add to my collection :)
