  1. Prewash silk head scarf in warm, soapy water. This helps to remove any finishes that may interfere with dye absorption.
  2. Scrunch scarf into a ball. Wrap rubber bands around fabric to hold it together.
  3. Wearing rubber gloves, mix 1/2 cup of well-shaken liquid dye with two cups of hot tap water in a small bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of salt. Stir. We used Indigo.
  4. Submerge scarf into the bowl and let sit for several minutes until desired color is achieved.
  5. Remove scarf from bowl.
  6. Before removing the rubber bands, we strongly recommend using Rit ColorStay Dye Fixative on the dyed headwear. It enhances the color, increases color retention and prevents dye from bleeding into white areas. Follow package instructions.
  7. Carefully remove rubber bands with a scissors and unfold the fabric. Wash in warm water with a mild detergent, rinse and dry.
