White staining

Put jeans in a bucket of hot water, where 150-200 grams of whiteness was previously added. Start boiling, stirring all the time. Jeans should not come up.

To do this, only the trouser legs are lowered into the solution, they can be twisted, this will give an abstract pattern, or you can make a picture with the clothespins. The place where the clothespin will be is not painted.
