We bought some simple white t-shirts then found the coolest color of ritz dye we could, the tangerine orange. It turned out to be easier than we thought to dye the shirts. Let me tell you a few things we learned along the way.
For the second dipping we added half of what was left of the dye to the water. Then for the third dipping we added the rest of the dye and left the bottom of the shirt in a little longer until we had the color we wanted. We let them air dry then washed them in cold water and then dried them in the dryer.
So it's not absolutely necessary but it is a good idea to wear gloves. We didn't and our hands have a slightly orange glow to them now.
