What You Need
- 6 Cups Water (divided)
- 2 Tablespoons Turmeric
- 1/4 Cup Salt
- Wooden Spoon
1.Combine 2 cups the water and turmeric in the same pot, bring to a boil, and simmer for 15 minutes. Set aside.
2. Combine the water and salt in your pan and bring it to a boil, then add your fabric and let it simmer for one hour. The salt is your “fixative,” which helps your fabric take the dye.
3. Drain your fabric, wring it out when it’s cool enough to handle.
4. Add your dye to a bowl and let your fabric soak. The longer it soaks, the more vibrant your color will be check it after the first 5-10 minutes
5. Wash and rinse your fabric in the sink until the water runs clear, hang it to dry.
