How do I fade dark blue jeans?

I have purchased a couple of pairs of dark jeans. Is there any way to expedite the fading process?

Try sandpaper... Itll fade them and give a "distressed" look... Works great

Bleach. Fill a bucket with water and squirt a bit of household bleach in it, give it a good stir. Add your jeans, and slosh them about, keep checking the colour. You might need to leave these a while, periodically sloshing and checking. When they look good - put them in a washing machine for a "rinse & spin" cycle. L

A few hot washes?
