Re: My Bumgenius colors....

Yeah, how do you dye with koolaid? Does it bleed? Can you use koolaid on prefolds?

Re: My Bumgenius colors....

How much Koolaid did you wind up needing (and how much water)? Did you use 1/2 cup or a full cup of vinegar?

I am willing to just experiment with it, but if you can remember how much you used please share it with us....

Those look awesome! If I had more than 1 white, I'd buy dye and make more colors!

Re: My Bumgenius colors....

Here is what I did:

Used a big pot of water that was almost full, brought it to almost boiling
then added 3 packages of kool-aid
and 1 cup vinegar

I reduced the heat to medium low and added the diaper. I stirred it fequently for about 30 mins. Then rinsed the diaper and washed it.

It doesn't bleed at all. The ones with RIT bled for about 3 washes after, but not any more. But the kool-aid once I washed it in hot and did a rinse with vinegar nothing.

Those are beautiful! No Kool-Aid here... Does CountryTime lemonade mix work just as well?
