what dye/ how much do I use to tie-dye 50 t-shirts ???? Answered

I need to tie dye 50 shirts at a cub scout camp out. does anyone have any awesome ideas as to what dye / the best way / best tie, is it wise to concentrate dyes , since we can't dip fabric for too long etc. Camping you know. 50 little boys.

ok so i answered this yesterday and i'm such a dummy i clicked the cancel button instead of the post comment button. so here i go again.... I did this project for my daughter's bday party last year. first of all, do it outside if at all possible because it's messy and you're not getting around that. have the kids wear appropriate clothing because the dye is permanent. I used Rit Dye found at local supermarket or walmart in the laundry section It's really cheap like $1-$2. Also it might be helpful to buy buckets or a tub to work over. You also need rubber bands to tie around the shirts for the designs. instead of dunking the shirts we used condiment squirt bottles. They were like 50 cents in the kitchen gadget section at walmart. plus you don't have giant buckets to cart around. good luck, tie dying with kids is definitely an adventure!
