How to Dye a Shirt with Coffee
Do you want to give an old, colourless t-shirt a new look and make it look brand new? Dyeing a shirt with coffee is an easy and inexpensive way to update an existing shirt – all you need is a cup of coffee and a few other basic supplies.
What you need:
- Coffee of your choice
- Measuring cups
- Heavy-duty rubber gloves
- Large pot
- Paper towels
Step 1: Put on the rubber gloves and protect your working surface from any spills and splashes.
Step 2: Measure out the coffee and pour it into the large pot. Make sure the pot has enough room for the t-shirt to be completely immersed.
Step 3: Add 1 cup of salt and stir it into the pot until the salt has dissolved completely.
Step 4: Place the t-shirt into the pot and press it down firmly. Make sure that it is fully covered by the coffee-salt mixture.
Step 5: Turn the heat on to medium-high and let the shirt simmer for about 2 hours. Try to stir the mixture occasionally to ensure that the dye is getting an even coating on the shirt.
Step 6: Turn off the heat after the 2 hours and use tongs to remove the t-shirt from the pot. Allow the shirt to cool down and then rinse it off with cold water.
Step 7: Place the shirt on a paper towel and allow it to air dry. Once the shirt has dried, it is ready to wear!
Dyeing a shirt with coffee is a great way to give an old piece of clothing a new look. With just a few simple steps, you can easily create a unique and stylish piece of clothing.
