I bought a huge ball of kitchen cotton for really cheap at the grocery store, and some Kool-Aid. I KNEW that I had read something somewhere about dying cotton with Kool-Aid, but didn't look it up until I got home. So I read you can't dye cotton with Kool-Aid, I thought "I'll prove them wrong" :rollseyes:
. I got a lovely colour out of it, but it was not colourfast, now I have a dishcloth that is white that used to be variagated pink. Oh well, so I tried.
Now I'd like to know specifically what do you use to dye cotton? I think I read something about needing an acid base dye. Is this true? Are there things commonly found in your average store that can be used for cotton?
