Dyeing question

Is it better to use bleached or unbleached flats/prefolds when tie-dying or solid dyeing? Does it matter? Thanks

My Mood:
I would think the bleached ones would dye truer to color. Unbleached would give them a darker tint maybe? Not sure though, haven't been able to dye any myself yet.

Re: Dyeing question

There isn't a huge difference, IME. Bleached end up being just a bit brighter.
