If you're a mom like me, you live in your jeans. Also, being a mom, I find myself on the floor ALL..... DAY....LONG! Playing dolls, changing diapers, playing doggie, acting as horsey with 2 year old passengers on my back, folding laundry, cleaning up blocks - You name it! Well, my jeans take a toll with my floor time adventures, and my knees are the first to show for it. Even with all the wash care I take - washing them in cold water inside-out and air drying - I can't seem to avoid my jeans fading.
I found myself shopping for a new pair of jeans this week because each of my nine pairs in my closet were considerably faded. As any mother knows, jeans shopping is not fun! Shopping for jeans is time consuming (time I don't have), and I'm also quickly remind that I need to be hitting the treadmill more.
So, I decided I would try dying my jeans... and, I wish I had thought of this four pairs ago. I bought some RIT clothing dye at the local craft store, and take a look at the transformation.
Here are the colors I used: 1 full packet of RIT Dye in navy, and 1/3 packet of RIT Dye in black. For dying instructions, visit www.RitDye.com.
Your new pair of jeans will cost you a total of... dun da da... TWO DOLLARS!!!!!! Now, NO excuses for those faded mom jeans!
