You ConDo It: Try This Easy Tie-dye Project At Home

With the extreme heat of the summer sun, sometimes it’s better to stay in – and we’ve got the perfect activity for you and your kids to enjoy in the comfort of your condo!

Here’s an easy step-by-step guide to a DIY dye project using materials lying around in your home:

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

You’ll need the following:

  • Shirts or any cloth you want to design (works best on 100% cotton-made cloth)
  • Vinegar
  • Water
  • Rubber bands
  • Condiment bottles with nozzles
  • Food coloring
  • Zip lock

Step 2: Soak Your Shirt

Before even beginning to dye, soak your shirt or cloth in an equal mix of water and vinegar for one hour

Step 3: Tie It Up

After soaking, wring out your shirt or cloth and wrap your rubber bands in any way you want. This shall determine the design of your tie-dye so get creative!

Step 4: You Can Dye It

Use one condiment bottle with a nozzle for each of your dye. Fill the bottle up with half a cup of water and around 8 drops of food coloring, shake and voila, you’ve got yourself homemade dye! Squirt the dye onto your shirt or cloth.

Step 5: Zip It

Once you’re satisfied with your dyed shirt or cloth, put it in a zip lock and let it stay there for 24 hours. Enjoy your creation!

Whether you’re doing DIY Tie-dye activities or just relaxing by the pool, enjoy staying in when you live in SMDC Charm Residences.
