The reverse tie-dye is the newest and coolest trend and we dig it. This trend appeared in the 1960s where people showed their creativity and colourful lives.
2020 is doing this trend in reverse, we are taking our colourful or black clothes and bleaching it, it’s quite a fun task to do during this lock and never-ending lockdown.
Heres how we did it:
Choose an item of clothing you wish to change- I took an old pair of track pants that needed to be upcycled.
Use elastic bands tie your item of clothing in the pattern you want, make sure it’s tight
Make sure you are in a well-ventilated area; I went outside, and I placed a black plastic bag underneath the items of clothing just for protection.
Depending on the bleach you are using; mix half bleach and half water into a spray bottle then spray it onto the clothes.
I used Domestos 500ml and I didn’t mix it with water, I just used it straight from the bottle and threw it onto my track pants
Wait about 15-30min and then rinse the item of clothing, make sure all the bleach is out before placing it into the washing machine or you could wash it by hand, your choice.
Wait for it to dry and you are DONE with your reverse tie-dye!! That’s a new item of clothing in your closet yay
