Now I know that dyes have chemicals in them but we all wear clothes with such dyes everyday, this is all the reason to wear our clothes for longer. We can update them, donate or change them into something new. So I did have a conscience when I bought this dye, so I've been looking at natural alternatives to dyeing clothes and there is loads of information out there on this. Here are some ideas at this blog
There are also instructions for experiments you can do with kids which is a great way to get the children involved and bring up some interesting questions about preserving and recycling. I think I will try some of the ideas at Planet Science .
I will post before and after images of the garment to be dyed even if it is a disaster.
I've also seen this lovely book for anyone with little girls Sew Pretty T-Shirt Dresses I'm sure lots of clothing items could be saved in this way.
