I cannot bear throwing out special baby clothes that have been stained with sweet potatoes. So I started dyeing Ada’s clothes as an experiment to see if I could cover stains and brighten colors. I used to use Rit black dye and pull it out early so it made a lovely dark purple. But Chris made fun of the Goth baby clothing and it eventually faded to a sad gray color. Then I discovered Idye and I am kind of in love.
Idye’s colors are bright and beautiful. It is super easy to use and the colors stay. The clothes will need to be washed with like colors for a bit, and you cannot use a dye pan for cooking, but the results are worth the separating. It is also easy to do the whole process in your washing machine. I especially like playing around with this alchemy on dreary winter days.
