so I am about to start the Tie-Dye program at a camp here in the states and I have a question about Soda Ash.
I REALLY don't want the kids to come in contact AT ALL with the soda ash mixture and I have been racking my brain trying to come with an idea that'll work. One idea was to soak the shirts (which camp provides) and then dry them out so all the kids need to do is pick a shirt, tie it and dye it. but its a HUUUUGE pain and I don't have time to drip dry 300 shirts!
anyway, I had an idea - what if the kids dye their shirts and then right before they put them in bags, I come around a pour a cup of soda ash mixture on their dyed items. Will this work? Can I do this? because if so, I might just dance around the room.
thanks! (I will post some nice pictures once we start the program this Friday)
