Dyeing with vegetables: help, please!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I left a linen blouse in the fridge too long (awaiting ironing), and it came down with measles. :o That is, my lovely ecru blouse has little beet-colored spots on it. The spots didn't wash out. :(

So I figure I might as well dye the blouse so that I can keep wearing it. Anyone have experience dyeing with beets? Care to give me some pointers?

Thanks!

Hello

i woud suggest going to a craft store, and purchasing a clothing dye in the same color (or close) as the stain.i used to work in a drycleaners, i can honestly tell you that dying fabric with an organic substance isnt good for your garments, because of the acid content. :eek:
