Laura spilled some mayonnaise on her cotton dress. It left a nasty oily stain. Wash it with some Brown fels naphtha soap first before washing, I advised -she didn’t even leave the soap on – but it took the color out of the fabric. Hmmm so much for my advice.
My solution. Rubber bands and yarn ties all over the dress for a reverse tie dye in a solution of Clorox water. Good thing I’m a retired art teacher
Love the way the dress turned out! Very clever solution, Ruth.
What a clever idea!
Didn’t know how it would work out but we are pleased with the result
Success indeed and crazy because the swirl tie dye version is the better one – love this
Thanks Yvette. It’s a bit unpredictable but we were pleased with the result!
☀️and it made for a fun post
You’re a wealth of great ideas. You created a special dress, more unique than the original.
The old art teacher came out!
Great idea, love how nice the dress came out.
Thanks Carrie. It was fun to do.
I’d love to try this. I have a few of my favorite dresses that have oily stains. Soo creative.
Take photos and share 😂
Only you. Clever and fabulous gcr
I love the new appearance of the dress. It has a clever, artsy look. I predict that people are going to ask Laura where she got her dress.
What a grand idea. I love how the dress turned out, actually like it more than the original. Tie dyeing is making a bit of a comeback. This may be a project to do with the grands. Whenever my nieces and nephews would visit from Michigan with their dad back in the day, we would tie dye tees on our lawn. So many memories.
It can be a mess with dye. My main goal was an even Clorox wash, no stark white speckles!
It’s perfect! Great idea.
Oh no! Glad it could be salvaged with a bit of creativity!
