boiling denim.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
im tryin to shrink a medium phoenix wash(relatively light colored) denim in boiling water.

the denim is new n i washed it only once.

ill b usin vinegar n salt with the hot water to minimize bleeding of dye.
the jeans will b inside out, zipped n buttoned.

1. will it still b a big damage to the denim to do this??(id like to take good care so that i can wear this for a long time)

2. how long shud i leave it in for n wat shud i do afterwards??(ive got a dryer i can use but it doesnt seem to go very high in temp. but i can go for the hightest temp it has.)

3. does some TRs dont shrink in length at all??

thank you.

I've never done it, but why not just size down?

ive already bought it, washed it, cant get a refund. besides, TR dont make it no more so i didnt have much option.

there's no chance this will work if they aren't 100% cotton. jeans are often made of preshrunk cotton though so you may not succeed at all..
are they too long? why not get them hemmed?

i dont need hemming...it doesnt touch the ground(id say bout a third to half inch above) when i wear my xc-favo(puma black station's sneakers) but just because it would look better from the front with less stacking...(i personally dont like stacking very much....)also itd b better when i wear them inside without shoes. the denim is 100% cotton but i think it doesnt shrink anyway if i did the boiling n drying correctly...thou, thanx for ur help.
