tie dying
  • I have used this product for the last two years and have had some difficulty. The dyes look beautiful when first unwrapped but after the first washing the colors fade. I presoak in soda ash first. I use cotton blend tees. Should I keep them wrapped for more than 24 hours after dying? Any other suggestions?:(
  • Your problem is the cotton blend you're dyeing. Your tees should be only 100% cotton. You will immediately see much better results when you are dyeing the right fiber content.

    Avoid stain-resistant tees, too, because anything that resists stain will also resist dye.
