Apart from swearing a lot what else can I do? Bleach them and dye them? If so any particular dye for jeans?

I'd dye them with Dylon - but you might still see the shading iyswim?

I think you'll still see the difference. Dylon isn't that great. Ive done all sorts and you can always see patches.

If you can't bear to ditch them I'd get some dylon, paint it onto the patch only, fix it with salt for a couple of hours and then put through the wash but I doubt it will work.

I've splashed navy trousers with bleach, re-dyed them using Dylon in navy and you cannot tell.

The alternative is what? Give it a go OP. Don't bleach them first. Use Dylon machine dye.

I'd attempt to dye them.

don't bkeach them, Dylon and sharpies is all you can do. I've found the black dye covers it quite well

Dylon machine dye has worked for me in the past

We have markers in the lab that are ethanol (amongst other things) -resistant, perhaps that would work better than a sharpie? Not sure where you'd buy them from though.

I reduced my black trousers with Dylon, I coloured them in with permanent marker first.

Worked perfectly.

Dylon in the washing machine works every time. I use it regularly to rejuvenate old jeans. Follow the instructions and all will be will. You will need an old towel to wipe down the rubber seal afterwards but I've never had a problem with staining on subsequent loads.

Black marker

Was gonna say, I've managed to dye towels fine with Dylon. They look like they were bought that colour, so I would go with Dylon.

IME black Dylon is never completely black so I reckon you'd see the patches.

I'd go for a permanent marker pen.

Easier, cheaper and quicker too!

One Dylon is enough for one pair of trousers only. The mistake a lot of people make is to try to dye too much fabric at once which causes the patches.

I'd try permanent marker first, then add fabric paint (iron to set permanently), which should work.

toxic stuff and not great at getting things clean.
