2 Buckets (One for bleaching and 1 for rinsing)
1 Gallon of Bleach

Step 1: Dip it
Fill up one bucket with bleach and dip your clothing into the bucket. Let it sit for 3 minutes in the bleach. 

Step 2: Rinse it
After removing your clothing from the bleach let it hang over the bucket to drain for 30 minutes. This will allow the bleach to work it's magic. Then fill up the other bucket with water and dunk the bleached portion of the clothing under the water to rinse out the bleach. 

Step 3: Dry it
After rinsing, let it air dry for about an hour to get the full color affect. 

Step 4: Wash it
Throw your newly bleached duds in the wash to get the bleach smell out.
