Check the manufacturer's care label on the inside of the jeans.
Fill the washing machine to an appropriate level for the wash cycle you are using, add the proper amount of bleach detergent to the water, and agitate the water and detergent to mix well. Turn the washer off.
Submerge the jeans in the water and detergent mix, and leave for three to four hours or overnight.
Turn the washing machine back on so it can finish its current cycle.
Process the jeans through a second rinse cycle to ensure that all the detergent is removed.
Dry the jeans on a regular setting with medium or low heat.
