    Is there any way i can be sure that the color won’t wash out?

    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.

    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 with my 5 year old, she had fun with it...I mixed about a cup water with each kool-aid and vinegar but the colour wasn't really as vibrant as I would have liked but if you don't add water then there's not enough dye to cover the garment...a fun holiday activity but just wish the colours were brighter. Thanks for posting!
