How To Dye Your Clothes With All-Natural Dye

by Almira on January 31, 2011 · 0 comments

Designer Audrey Louise Reynolds uses fresh veggies and fruits to dye her wearables. Yum—No harsh chemicals here! All of her ingredients for the all-natural dye ends up costing about the same amount that you would pay (about $5) for your typical Rit dye. See how she does it in this Daily Candy Video:

Ingredients:

  • 1 blouse (dye should last for about 3-4 blouses)
  • 1 pkg Pantyhose
  • 1 pint Strawberries (cut tops off)
  • Salt
  • Vinegar
  • Water

I can’t wait to try this! Beets would probably work just as well with a bit of a darker more purple hue. I’m wondering how you would do black naturally?
