Awesome guide :0 +rep
Unfortunately, the acid wash sounds like it can't be done in a front load washer, which I use because I'm short :<
Also, the acid splashing/bleach spraying can also be used to make patterns on your jeans (or any dark clothing really). You can make stencils out of take and place them on, spray away, then spray with water when it reaches the shade you want (the water stops the bleaching).
I plan on adding stuff to my new jeans that I just bought, since they are all dark blue (And so plain D: )
