Shake up your bottle of Black dye and pour into measuring cup. Add 1 cup of salt and 4 cups of very hot water, at least 140º. If your tap's not hot enough, just heat some in microwave or tea kettle.
Note: 2 boxes of powder dye = 1 bottle of liquid dye. Either will work in this application.
Add 1 gallon of additional hot water and stir. Immerse your wrapped, wet jeans and let set for 20 minutes. To help the dye penetrate, turn and push down with a spoon.
Remove from dye, remove rubber bands. Rinse in cool water until water runs clear. Wash in warm water with mild detergent, rinse and hang dry.
And there ya go!!
