You will need -
* One washing up bowl sized container that is no longer used
* One tablespoon of salt
* One packet of fabric dye for hand dying
* Plastic or preferably rubber gloves (these are important!)
* A stirring implement, I used an old paintbrush
* A smaller plastic container (not pictured)
* One really nasty coloured dress (which is a nice style)
STEP 2 - MIX UP THE DYE ACCORDING TO INSTRUCTIONS
I did not think to write down the instructions from the packet for this post as I am a fool!
Make sure to stir it up really well and not to splash it everywhere, a sensible option would be to place it on an old towel or some newspaper unlike myself who got it on the worktop - it came off thankfully as I was quick enough to spot it!
STEP 3 - FILL UP THE LARGE CONTAINER WITH WATER AND ADD SALT
It was also warm water for this dye, the instructions will reveal all to you!
If you have a curious cat shut them out of the room, Biggins nearly became a black cat due to her idiocy!
STEP 4 - ADD THE DYE TO THE WATER
Again, be careful to stir thoroughly and wear the gloves! I got a hole in one of my gloves and ended up with weird black stains for a few days!
STEP 5 - SUBMERGE OFFENDING GARMENT IN THE BLACK WATER
Poke it about a bit to ensure it is all covered with dye.
Then stir continuously for FIFTEEN MINUTES!!!
You will then need to stir it regularly according to the instructions, I had to do it for about 45 minutes.
STEP 6 - THROW IT IN THE WASHING MACHINE!
I didn't take a picture of my washing machine to add here..... I think everyone can use their imagination!
MOST IMPORTANTLY, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS PROPERLY!!
