DIY acid washed denim jacket

what you need:
  • a piece of denim clothing (I got my jacket at a thriftstore!)
  • a sponge (I recommend using one you don't need anymore)
  • rubber gloves to protect your hands
  • bleach
  • a small bowl 
  • a plastic bag or something else to protect your working area

what you do:
  • cover the working area
  • spread your piece of clothing out in front of you
  • fill some bleach into the bowl
  • tip: in case you never used bleach before or you're not sure how light you want the denim to turn out, mix the bleach with a little water, this will slow down the bleaching process
  • dip your sponge into the bleach and go over the denim with it
  • you don't need to make it perfect, but try to spread it somewhat equally
  • let the bleach sink in and do its work
  • if you need to, you can go over the denim a couple more times, if you want the effect to be stronger
  • I actually mixed 2/3 bleach and 1/3 water and went over the denim 3 times, my denim was kind of resistant to the bleach. that can happen!
  • put your clothing in the washing machine (and dryer)
  • voilĂ !
