I love this idea! I have quite a few items I can use this method with, and I think I am going to get out the white and off white baby grows I have saved from when my youngest was tiny, and give those a new lease on life. Do you think it would work on clothes that have slight stains on them from baby formula or would it not cover that?

Kids love to tie dye! I was at an event a couple of summers ago where there were several tie dying stations set up and every single one of them had a line out the tent in order to get to tie die t-shirts, towels, and little canvas bags. Darned kids. lol I never did get a chance to do anything myself. I may have to remember to do this activity with my niece and nephew the next time I am visiting them. Thanks for sharing!
