50/50 blend t-shirts
  • For a church camp, I was going to have the kids make tye-dye shirts since we had white t-shirts available. The shirts are a 50% polyester and 50% cotton. Can they be used? What specifically will happen if they are tye-dyed?

    Thanks,

  • What specifically will happen if you use the 50/50 tees? - you'll get colors at about 50% the normal brightness and shirts that will release dye from the stained polyester for most of the rest of their lives. You will be much, much happier with the overall results if you use 100% cotton tees.
