Easy tie-dyed shirts "recipe" I found in one of my daycare books


  1. You'll need small plastic bowls, plastic gloves, rubber bands, and T-shirts.
  2. Mix 1 package Kool-Aid for each color you want and 1 ounce of vinegar in individual plastic bowls.
  3. Mix until Kool-Aid is dissolved.
  4. Using rubber bands, pull and twist T-shirt into different shapes.
  5. Dip rubber-banded ends in bowls (make sure you wear gloves or your hands will stain).
  6. To set colors, iron on medium-high using an ironing cloth between shirt and iron.
  7. Let set for 24 hours before washing.

I bought supplies for an entire Cross Country team of girls, followed all dirctions exactly, the tshirts turned out beautiful; but when we washed them (after ironing to set the color) the color all washed out. What a disappointment.

I did this project with my granddaughters and they turned out beautiful. I followed all the steps exactly. When I washed them all the color washed out. What a great disappointment.

Since one reviewer said the color wasn't vibrant enough, I think I will use two packets to get a more vibrant color.
