Things to try: Fade your own Tee's

Create your own vintage T-shirts at home.

For a mild fade:
1. soak the shirt in 8 cups water, 1 1/2 cups salt for 3 days.
2. wring and rub down with sandpaper.
3. hang dry in the sun.
4. wash and dry normally.

For an extreme fade:
For this to work, the tee must be 50/50 cotton/polyester blend)
1. soak the shirt in 6 cups water, 2 cups bleach, 1/2 cup salt for 2 days.
2. wash and dry.
