Today’s tip is a diy project that was born from a recent ‘oh crap’ moment. Last week I was running around doing too many things at once, as usual. So when I decided to clean the showers between gymnastics class and a grocery store run, I ended up with a bleach spot on my favorite cords. Ugh! The good news is that I was able to save them! I have been hunting for a great pair of pastel pants, a look that has been popping up all over pinterest this spring. And that little bleach spot looked like just the right color!
I drew a nice hot bath with bleach in the kitchen sink, and let my pants soak until they were just the right shade, about 45 min. Washed them a couple times, and they were ready to wear. The original bleach spot is still there, but barely visible. It’s just a touch lighter than the rest of the pants. Now they’re saved from the trash bin, and I can wear them all spring!
