Can you use food coloring to dye t-shirts? Answered

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.

the color will probably wash out, and turn brown when ironed :-)

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