With our beach week quickly approaching, we've been doing an awful lot of packing and stuff-gathering. Amongst those items is my beach cover-up. It's seen better days. It was a hand-me-down from my mum and It's been to numerous camps with me and is a little dingy and even had a few rust spots. The thing is though, structurally there was nothing wrong with it. My bath robe had a similar story, but i've even singed it's sleeves once or twice while making Sunday morning breakfast.
|Sorry 'bout the particularly mangy look, they'd just come out of the washer.|
So, I went to JoAnns and bought a $3 bottle of liquid Rit dye.
I followed the directions on the bottle, giving them a double agitation/wash cycle, and rinsed it 'til the water ran clear (4 rinse cycles). I'm totally pumped at the new life a little dye has added to my robe and cover-up. Especially the cover-up. The hibiscus pattern on it really soaked up the dye and is a totally different color than the base fabric.
