Does anyone know how to fade clothing quickly?
Styleforum Top Picks
I recently found a bright-blue polo shirt in my closet and I remember that I never wore it because it was too brightly-colored for me but have considered wearing it if I could find a safe and quick of fading it without having to dry it in the sun day after day.
One friend of mine suggested boiling it but I'm too concerned about fabric damage.
Does anyone here know any other method that can be used to quickly and safely fade bright clothing without causing fabric damage?
I understand that it's an old post, but have found it trying to get the same info. Haven't tried this method, but it does look like it might work.
Take the top or pant, etc and put it in the washer machine on the hottest setting. When the cycle is 3/4 of the way finished, add 1 cup of pure, lemon juice.
Take the washed top and hang it in the sun for two days. Turn it every so often so that it's equally exposed.
After two full days, see if it's faded enough. If not, repeat the process. (You can use up to 3 cups of lemon juice if you want it very faded.)
Have no tried it yet as I just read it, myself, but I hope it will work!
Recently bought a very nice top online and while I love the material and fit, I am very unhappy with the pattern. It's GARISH and looked much more subdued, online. I love the fit too much to return it, so I have been hunting for ways to fade it.
Anyway. Hope you found the method that works for you and that the above was of some help.
Happy fading!! :)
