How to Heal Your Faded Black Jeans

Faded Black? Bring Your Jeans Back to Life

We like a little fade on our blue denim, but not our blacks. When black jeans start to fade, they start to lose their appeal, too. So, to prevent buyer's remorse on a pair of amazing designer denim, Heal My Jeans offers relief in the way of an expert dye job. Just send your faded blacks in, and for $45 a pair, they'll be newly dyed, and brought back to life. And if you happen to be on the road touring with your band, they'll ship back the concert-worthy jeans to meet you at your next gig, no joke. Restoration denim.

OMG, this is a great service. Jess just finished resurrecting my Gucci jeans.! they had become drab and greyish.  They are beautiful again, and even the detailing and label remained intact. I always avoided wearing them, yet they are one of my favorite pairs Of course I couldn't find the same style/fit anywhere.I found HMJ from  facebook and they were very adorable and fun to work with! Hello!, They even put a surprise  wrapped gift in the backpocket.

Wow, for that money you might as well buy a new pair (or even two).

Also, you've got to check what your jeans are made of. The more unusual fabrics (ramie, spandex, polyester blends) might not take to the dye....

I do this all the time. Especially when I find a pair of light colored jeans in the store that fit well, I usually dye them dark! Usually the stitching does not take the dye. Designs on the jeans wouldn't take dye either, unless it feels/is very similar to the jean fabric.

For a much easier fix, try: 2 bottles of black LIQUID Rit Dye, 8 oz size 1 bottle of dark or indigo blue LIQUID Rit Dye, 8 oz size Fill your washing machine with hot water (as hot as the clothes can handle), add the 3 bottles of color. Add your clothes and let them agitate for 2-3 minutes. Pause the wash cycle and let them sit for an hour. Then proceed with the cycle as usual. Sometimes I add another rinse cycle so the color doesn't bleed on to my other clothes. If the dye has tinted your wash tub, run another EMPTY cycle with hot water. I have black skinny jeans from Express that I LOVE. I do this to them and some other items a couple times a year. The whole process takes about 2 hours and costs $15.
