A Quick Clothing Fix……….

A Quick Clothing Fix……….

I have a habit of wearing either black or brown pants to work always. Since I wear my black pants alot I subsequently wash them alot which has led to fading. The pants are still in great shape but faded. So I finally decided that I would give good ol' RIT dye a try. I bought a bottle for $2.58 that dyes up to 2 lbs (so the directions say) I ended up dying 3 pairs of long pants, 1 skirt, and 4 pairs of capri pants (probably more than the recomended 2 lbs). My pants turned out great! They are a nice dark black again and look good as new! I just wanted to pass this along because thrift pants may be faded but a bit of dye makes them look new again!
