I was doing laundry while wearing my denim and I got a few drops of bleach splash on my denim. I can't stand those white dots. Is there a way to dye them?

Blue and black Sharpie markers?

But, it really doesn't look bad. Some of my jeans have spots and stains on them from various accidents and spills - gives them some character.

Ask at a good dry cleaner what to do, they usually know!

Splash some more bleach on it to make it look more intentional.

I think it looks good as is, just a touch of character. Kinda like a scar. Chicks dig scars, therefore they dig bleach stains on jeans too.

If you really don't like them, I would go to Walmart and pick up some Rit dye, maybe one blue and one black, mix it up, and apply very carefully with a q-tip or something. I think the dye should fade with the jeans, so you'll just have discolored spots that are in the same general category of color, instead of white spots.

Jeans are work pants. They're supposed to get fucked up.

I think they look good like that.

If it really bothers you, I think Sharpie is the way to go.
