Re: tie-dye advice needed

I used to tie-dye with kids every spring.

I just used soda ash and let the t-shirts (already bound) soak for AT LEAST
20 minutes. The longer the better. I used to demonstrate how to bind a
spiral, a bull's eye and stripes and then also recommend that they could bind
any way they wanted to.

Get plastic gloves for everyone and plenty of rubber bands. Also the shirts
are supposed to be soaked in regular water and wrung out before binding.

Good luck and have fun!
