Should you wet shirt before tie dying?
We generally recommend washing your fabric and leaving it damp before tie-dyeing, as the dye has an easier time saturating the fabric when it's wet. But depending on the technique and the look you want, you can apply dye to dry fabric. Just make sure the fabric has been washed (if it's new) to remove the sizing. via
Can you tie-dye a shirt with a design on it?
Yes! However, the color you choose to overdye with will mix with the existing color(s) in the logo and create new colors. Even if you were to overdye the patterned garment with a dark color, you may find that the color will appear lighter along the patterned area. via
How long should I let my tie-dye sit?
Let the fabric sit for 2-24 hours. The longer you can let the fabric sit, the easier it will be to wash out loose dye from the fabric. The length of time you let the fabric sit is not overly critical. If you are in a hurry, let the fabric sit for as long as your deadline will allow. via

What can you use instead of rubber bands for tie-dye?
Kite string is the most common alternative to rubber bands for tie-dye. This type of string is cheap and can be bought at most craft stores. Just about any kind of string can work, but kite string in particular is both cheap and strong. Another, more advanced option is to use waxed thread. via

Can I use food coloring to dye fabric?
When you dye clothing, it is common to use commercial fabric dye from a craft or art store. However, if you do not have any fabric dye on hand, you can dye your clothes with food coloring. Step 1: Fill a large stock pot with water. If you are going to dye a larger amount of clothing, fill the stock three-fourths full. via
Do you rinse tie-dye before soaking in vinegar?
Try soaking your tie dye in equal parts white vinegar and cold water for 30 minutes after you initially rinse out the dye from your garment. After the first couple washes, wash tie dye in cold water to prevent dye from fading. Use gentle, color-safe detergents. Hang your items to dry, rather than using the dryer. via
What is Reverse Tie Dye?
Unlike traditional tie-dye, reverse tie-dye removes the color of your garment to reveal a unique, high-contrast pattern. Household bleach is a popular method used to achieve this look but leave it on for too long and it will begin to eat away at your fabric. via
