Give Shirts New Life With Rit Dye

I wanted to share with you a great product that I have been playing with, Rit Dye! It has been around for years and how I haven’t used it until now, I don’t know.  I am really excited to work with Rit, it is a fantastic Dye. Let me give you a little info on how Rit works. You boil water and mix in the Liquid dye. (I recommend the liquid Not the powder) More dye you add = richer and darker the color. After that, you just put your shirt in the dye. I let sit for 5-20 minutes and then wash the dye out with cold water, then wash the garment in your washer in a cold setting. It’s a great way to give new life to your old shirts with a pop of color!
