My go-to pants are black pants but every time I get a new pair they last about 4 washes before the color starts to fade. Does this just happen to me? Its super annoying but I think  may have found the way to keep those pants living a little longer.
-Black dye (I used Rit dye from Michael's for like 2 dollars)
-Large Container (or something to soke your pants in. Don't use your tub because it will stain)
-Salt if your using cotton
-Pants (obvi)
1// Fill bucket with really hot water and immediately add in salt and dye.

2// Submerge pants in water moving them around for thirty minutes (guilty: moved pants around for ten, got bored, came back thirty minute later and pants were fine)
3) Dump dyed water and put pants under water until the water streams white with no more dye in it.
4) Dry in dryer.

  1. I'm definitely going to have to try this out! I have several pairs of black pants that I thought I needed to donate or toss because they were no longer perfectly black...but now I can save myself the $$ :)
