Confession time: Iâ€™m too cheap to throw out clothes just because I splatter a little spaghetti sauce or fudgesicle on them. I had a whole pile of faded and stained t-shirts when I came across iDye, a natural fabric dye. The process is foolproof: just throw the whole packet into the hot washing machine with a little salt or vinegar and it will dissolve and dye 2 to 3 pounds of rayon, cotton, silk, wool or linen. For just $4, I got a whole new wearable wardrobe including a former cheerful orange bridesmaid dress that was too bright for everyday wear until it transformed into a strawberry red. â€“Katie D.
