Restoring Denim Color

Hi Jennifer,
I have four pairs of blue jeans that fit me great, but they are faded. Is there a certain dye and method that would work well to restore them to a darker indigo blue? Jeans are 100% cotton, no stains, just faded.

Dear Patty,
I would suggest the blue or maybe a combination of blue and black in the industrial dyes available at www.dharmatrading.com. The industrial dyes are inexpensive and very simple. Toss the plastic packet in a washer load of hot water and agitate for 20 minutes. I have used the black one to over dye faded black jeans and t-shirts with good success. Check it out! Search for industrial dyes at the dharma website.
