    My darling son....

    We went to the mall today and spent the last of his Christmas gift cards... he decided to get these new jeans at his Fave store D-Tox (skater store) he bought 2 pair of jeans. One was the dark dark black and the other was blue...

    well lets fast forward this story to ummm say 3 minutes ago. I am in the kitchen and I tell everyone that I am bleaching the cutlery and the mugs and glasses due to my dad being sick over the hoildays and hacking all over everything. and now hubby has a scratchy throat and so does our daughter. So while I am in the kitchen I decide not to waste the hot soapy bleach water in the sink from after bleaching the other items so I decide to wash the counter tops and the light switches and the door knobs to the cupboards (I know I know some one stop me! LOL)

    Well my son with his brand new black jeans on come in and SITS ON THE FRESHLY BLEACHED COUNTER [​IMG] I flipped out and told him that he was sitting on a wet counter that was just bleached and told him to rush upstairs and soak his jeans in cold water in the bath tub. I am hoping it will dilute the bleach and fast enough so that there is no damage caused to his jeans.

    whats the chance he just threw $80 down the drain?

    Not a total loss even if it bleaches. Just have to redye them and let them soak in vinegar afterwards to set the dye.

    or splash some more bleach on them in a random pattern and make 80.00 jeans into 120.00 jeans [​IMG]

    Just an FYI...... vinegar is the best way to counteract to bleach. They neutralize each other
