Step By Step

  1. Accordion fold the shirt vertically. Place 4 rubber bands going in both directions. Wet shirt in water.

  2. Mix up squirt bottles with 1/2 cup of liquid dye or 1 package of powder dye into 2 cups of HOT water.

  3. Spray shirt with lightest color dye first, separating folds. Release rubber bands. Unfold it and accordion fold the shirt going the opposite direction and squirt it with the next darkest color.

  4. Release rubber bands. Spray it with dye fixative and let it sit for 20 minutes.

  5. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high for 2 minutes.

  6. Remove from microwave and rinse in cold water.

  7. Make sure it rinses clear before washing in cold water with laundry detergent. The dye fixative will really help to reduce the color bleeding and set the dye.
