This past weekend was packed with so much … a wedding on Saturday, Division Street Fest, a family photo shoot Sunday morning … cleaning, grilling and spending much needed quality time with Phil (I am SO excited he is finally home!). But … before my non-stop go, go weekend, I snuck in some bleach tie-dying late on Friday afternoon.
I have been wanting to do this for a couple weeks now especially with all of the bleached clothes that are out in the stores. So I pulled out the bleach and a couple old t-shirts and leggings, and got to bleaching. Make sure you do this outside and wear those rubber gloves (the bleach totally dried out my hands … )
Here’s what you need >>>
// Cotton clothing (I used leggings and a couple old t-shirts)
// Rubber bands
// Squirt bottle
// Rubber gloves
// Garbage bag
Gather your t-shirt into small little bunches and rubber band each section like the photo below. Pour a little bleach into your squirt bottle and put on those gloves to protect your hands!
Take the squirt bottle and drizzle it on different sections of your garment over a garbage bag. It helps to let the bleach drizzle over the item to give it that random messy look. Let the bleach soak into the item for a few minutes, and then rinse the garment in cold water.
Pull off all the rubber bands and check out your creation. If you need a little more bleach in some places … drizzle it on the areas. Then rinse again.
Make sure you wash your bleach tie-dyed garment in the washing machine alone once you have it how you want. Then … enjoy!
I am obsessed with my leggings … they already made appearance at Division Fest … so don’t be surprised if you see a lot of these this summer.
