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

It's absolutely possible to tie-dye the same shirt twice, in fact, you can dye the same shirt as many times as you want. Once the dye has had time to set you can then rinse your shirt.

How long should you wait to rinse a tie-dye shirt?
Here's how to do it: Let the Dye Marinate — Don't wash your shirt for at least 24 hours after dying it. The longer you wait, the more time the dye will have to set into the fabric. Wash It On Its Own — When you're ready to wash, put it in the washing machine by itself or with other similarly colored tie-dyed shirts. 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

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
