Glad you like them!
-I used our instant hot tap and filled a pot of water and added a 1/2 cup of vinegar.
-I heated it a bit more until the temp. reached about 165. I dissolved about a 1/2 teaspoon of dye in a bit of hot water and then added it to the pot and stirred.
-Then I put the already wet dipes into the dye bath and continually stirred. They were literally only in the dye for about 5 minutes.
I think if I was to do it over I would have used a bit less powder, so the color wouldn't be quite so strong. Anyways, then I rinsed them in cool water until the water was clear. Then I threw them in the wash with a bit of Sensiclean. The water in the basin seemed to be clear as well.

Pretty easy...have fun!
