The Story of the Mint Jeans:
April 8th: I happily welcomed them into my closet. They were an Easter present from the hubby.
April 24th: They made there first appearance on the blog here
May 8th: Featured in my Pretty Little Look-A-Like post here
May 28th: Disaster Struck!!! I wore them to a Memorial Day BBQ and accidentally got a little bbq sauce from the ribs on them (I should have known better than to eat ribs in cute clothes). My sister had a tide-to-go pen so I treated the stain with that and washed them when I got home. As I pulled my jeans out of the wash I noticed that the laundry detergent stained them! There were streaks all over the jeans. I tried running them through the washer again (this time without detergent) and the stain was still there 🙁
May 29th: Researched on the internet and found that you can soak clothes in vinegar to get laundry detergent stains out. This did not work :,-(
May 30th: Bought mint dye and tried dying them to even out the color. This worked to even out the color from the laundry detergent stain but the stain from the bbq sauce was still there. At this point, I can’t wear them how they are so the hubby and I decide to bleach them to see if the stain would come out. That turned the pants a lime green color and the stain was still there. The mint jeans put up a good fight but sadly they weren’t going to pull through. So I decided to cut them off just above the stain to make them into shorts. Now my mint jeans are lime green shorts. At least I can still wear them. I will post a picture of them soon so you can see the transformation/ journey of the mint jeans.
May 31st: The hunt for a new pair of mint skinny jeans begins. Wish me luck!
