Dye silk clothing, scarves, handkerchiefs, skein silk, yardage, silk socks or undergarments, all, this fast, easy way. It turns out beautiful every time!
All you need is simple equipment you probably already have in your kitchen and some silk.
Here I've used the powdered drink mix as dyes. They work well. Have strong, vibrant colors. Are inexpensive to use. Are readily available. Safe to use in your own kitchen cookware. Require no special additions or equipment. Easter egg dyes or liquid food coloring can also be used.
Step 1: Keep It Simple
- Microwave safe bowl
