Months ago I wore a vest once and then it got bleach on it in the laundry. I figured I would try dyeing it to see if that would cover the spots. Of course I forgot to take any before pictures as usually. The before was about a khaki colored tan and the bleach spots were white. I had never used dye so I didn't know what to expect and hoped for the best.
Here we go:
I used the old fashioned stuff...
...and a GIANT pot. I opted for the stovetop method over the sink and washing machine methods.
Next, soak the fabric in hot water. I thought this would make a cool shot but it wasn't really.
Finally, stir....for 30 minutes. Or stir for 15 minutes because you think the color is dark enough now and you're tired of stirring.
End result vest is now brown and bleach spots are a khaki colored tan. Well, it was worth a try. I'm still not giving up on this vest yet. It just my take me another few months to figure out what to do next.
I almost forgot today's blessing! I got the WHOLE day off! My first one in about a week and a half and it's on a blog posting day!
