    I recently bought a pair of dry jeans that i would liek to wash my self before the normal time period. Im interested in giving them a faded look through a wash, but i do not know how to do so. Im also looking to distress the jeans after washing and fading them and im wondering how to do that.

    If anyone can tell me wat kind of chemicals or washes are used to make jeans look faded and how to distress them after i would really appreciate it.

    Make them all muddy, then do some army drill excercises as seen in movies (crawl in ground, climb over walls, etc...) for one day. Next day get them all muddy again enlist to do some volunary work for WFP and lift heavy rice bags all day, using your legs also (this is good for your back too, use your legs while lifting those heavy bags!). After two days you will be in better shape, you made world a better place and most of all your raw jeans were naturally distressed beautifully!
