    How do I clean dried out indigo from 501 STF's from the bathtub?

    damn... one more reason not to buy stf.... i washed my cmf homme and there was no indigo on the tub, and the water had almost none either, which is strange since they have some good fading(welll whiskers at 3 weeks)

    denim stayed dark too....

    Try Bon Ami powder cleanser, if you can find it. It seems to remove any stain I ever get on my 68 year old kitchen sink - which gets stained by anything that is poured into it.

    What did you do to them to get indigo in the tub?

    Well, I put them in a bucket for a couple of hours and I left them hanging in the back of the bathtub. So if you could imagine a long stream of indigo going down the drain and dried up, that's my tub.

    I sprinkled some baking soda on the stains last night, and it cleared most of it away, but I'll finish it off with a cleaner. Didn't want to use it last night cause of the stench.

    Hey, also,
    how can you be sure that the jeans are completely done shrinking. I know they have done some shrinking, but I don't know if it shrank all the way.

    I thought a lot of the indigo was gone because the bucket I put them in was almost like blue water colors, but the jeans still have that shine from when I got them.

    I'd just let it go. Distressing is good.
