Patchy Pants



This is a clever/lazyass cloth-washing hack I learned from my laziness at washing cloths in 1st year at hostel. These pants were black colored when I bought them. You can very well appreciate how cool they look now. So do you too want to do this to your black pants, capris etc?? Here's how -
  1. So get some surf and a bucket. Collect all the black pants you wish to stylize
  2. Pour some water, around a level that all your pants can stay immersed
  3. In that put some good amount of Surf Excel. I haven't tested others like Ariel etc
  4. Now leave that shit in some untouched corner in the bathroom and show some laziness
  5. So, even if after 7 days it stinks like shit, don't touch it, let another 7 days pass
  6. After 2 weeks, you'll find it uneasy to breath around the bucket
  7. That's the time to pour out all the dirty-black water
  8. Engage in a 1 hour exercise of pouring fresh water, beating, squeezing, doing whatever to get the shit smell out of your pants
  9. Let it dry :)
That's it, have a look at it now, it would have cool brown patches. 1 week before an end semester is ideal time to arrange the setup. Because that would be the time you wont even touch the bucket, even if it stinks. After a month of this trick, I saw a friend roaming in patchy 3/4s and I asked how the hell this happened, he told me the same story, that was an apple-fall-on-newton's-head moment!

In my diploma time once i forgot to wash cloths after putting it in bucket with surf excel. And after 7 to 8 hours i come to know about that and ewww ahh it was unbearable smell. I can't even think to keep it for one week.

And now i prefere to go home for washing cloths. ;)
