How To Remove Dark Stains From White Jeans

Sydne Style shows easy ways to distress denim at home with skinny jeansThese white skinny jeans have gone a quite a journey with me. I first wore them as is, simple, white and clean (you might remember them from this post). Tired of folding them under, and being too lazy to go to the tailor, I embraced this season’s frayed denim trend and cut them above my ankles. I was obsessed and couldn’t stop wearing them. A few weeks ago on a plane ride, a black pen exploded in my lap. There was no way the ink was coming out. But I refused to throw out my jeans.

My solution? A distressed denim DIY project. I simply cut out the multiple stains on my knees and thighs. Then I used tweezers and scissors to give the now clean denim a distressed vibe. The funniest part is you can actually buy the same look right now!  For more details on the distressing processing (it’s super easy!) you can check out this DIY video. And I hope this little trick helps you if you get any stains on your summer whites!

    Your story proves that there is always a way to save your favorite thing, and that’s great! Recently, I also ran into a problem, I did not understand how to remove sticker residue. But those who search will always find it, I found great posts published on the CustomSticker blog. This completely solved my problem
