    I soaked my Lee 101B that I got from the Edwin store in Harajuku recently but for some reason, the water turned a bit yellow instead of blue like it usually has when I've soaked my other jeans. Is this normal? Here's a picture: [​IMG] However, when I saw that, I drained the water and flipped it from inside out and I stuck it back in the tub and the water turned blue like usual

    You're not supposed to piss on your jeans, dude. You soak with water.

    I thought that the yellow was ammonia they use when doing the indigo dye process ?

    I get yellow/brown water quite often when I've worn my jeans clubbing - soaked-up cigarette smoke!

    Kinda makes you worry how much your lungs are absorbing...
