Dip Bleach Shorts DIY

 Here is a SUPER SIMPLE DIY that's chic, cute, simple and under $100 no, $6.00!! Assuming that you have most of the items. I would "guess-timate" about $10-15 dollars for supplies. I had a bucket, a stick, and a pair of thrifted Levi's, I only had to purchase the liquids.
What you'll need:
-A Bucket and Rubber Gloves
-A yard stick
-Denim Shorts (or any other article of clothing) 

 1.Combine in a bucket 2 parts water and one part bleach to make the bleach solution.
2. Prepare your shorts by threading a ruler though all of the belt loops. (I only looped it through the back three)

3.Dip the shorts into the bleach at the desired depth. Leave the shorts soaking for approx 30 minutes. (the bleach will run, so leave about an inch out of the solution for good measure)

4. After the bleach has turned the shorts the desired white shade (may take a few dips), remove shorts from bleach solution and soak in a sink or bathtub with two parts water and one part vinegar for approximately five to ten minutes to stop the bleaching process. 

5. Lay flat to dry out completely and wash ALONE for the first time.

6. ENJOY your super cute shorts :)
