Tie Dye Week is Over

Tie Dye is over.  All 500 students enjoyed squirting colored dye on their shirts.  So far, the shirts have looked fabulous.  I'll take some photos of them and post them soon.  It's fairly simple, just soak the cotton shirts in PH + for 15 minutes then wring out the shirts and twist.   Squirt on dye (dye, water, & urea).  Leave in a zip lock bag for 24 hours, then wash in a washing machine and dryer (no soap, no softener).  They turn out great.  Chec out:  http://www.dharmatrading.com/tie-dye/instructions.html

Well, once again we are preparing to create Tie Dyed T-shirts.  All students will bring in an all white, all cotton shirt.  I will post pictures when we create these masterpieces.
