lol. I googled rit dye towels and came here. I used purple to dye my dingy towels today and I totally screwed myself, I didn't wet the fabric before I put it in the dye bath, or let everything dissolve before I put them in there. Yup. Be very careful, I'm still trying to fix them. I think it may be hopeless, but it would have turned out beautiful if I would have followed the directions. LOL. Oh well. You live you learn.
so What do you do when your daughter drops it in the washer with her school clothes? Can't think of what to do to get it out. Hope is there a way?

Another tip I discovered, is to disolve the dye in some of the hot water, but NOT while the washer is filling, or you get dye particles everywhere in & on & around your machine!! I did that, & what a mess to clean up!! I dye my jeans when they lose their new color & it sure works.
I use the easter egg dye to do the same thing. I dissolve it in warm water and put small items of clothing in it. Usually if a child's clothes is stained by a color I cannot get out, I will choose that color to dye the clothing. It is not as dark as the rit dye but it works nicely in a pastel color.
RIT dye is permanent , trust me. you'd have to bleach it out. just be very careful when you use the stuff, follow the directions exactly, and you'll be pleased with the results. i'd like a link to the sites for the custom color recipes please. thanx
What do you use to keep the dye color? Wont it fade and wash out?
