What to use for homemade tie dye?

Kool Aid Tye DyeThis is just too much fun! Great for any size group and its super inexpensive as well.

Equipment and Supplies:

T-shirt (cotton works best)
Unsweetened Kool-Aid
Small plastic bowls
Plastic gloves
Rubber bands


For every color you wish to use, combine 1 package Kool-Aid and 1 ounce of vinegar in individual plastic bowls. Mix until Kool-Aid is dissolved. Using rubber bands, pull and twist T-shirt into different shapes. Dip rubber-banded ends in bowls (make sure you wear gloves or your hands will stain). To set colors, iron on medium-high using an ironing cloth between shirt and iron. Let set for 24 hours before washing. Wash separately the first time.

You can also use regular dyes.
