Can you use food coloring to dye t-shirts?

Like, what if you set it in the dryer on heat or ironed it? Would the color still come out?

Yes, and you can with plant dyes. You just have to have very acidic dyes, to make sure the color soaks in.

Worth a shot. Get a white shirt and dye it different colors then wash and see which colors stay or are uninfected.
