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

Top Review by donkey sue

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  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.
