My BG adventures with KoolAid!

I've been having lots of fun with dying these babies! Wish I would have known about dying them sooner, wouldn't have had to wait so long for colors! Thanks to that brave individual who decided to try it first!!

Re: My BG adventures with KoolAid!

Okay. How did you do it? Now I "need" to too. Do cotton diapers bleed afterwards or are they pretty color safe? I've never bought the stuff, but I'm gonna have to now.

Re: My BG adventures with KoolAid!

Nice job, mama!
I'm happy about my dyed ones myself too and wish there'd be more KA colors/flavors out there to dye with! LOL

Stacy,
to answer your ? re on 'how to' I can tell you how I did it:
Use a 6 gal pot, fill w/hot water and dissolve 3 pcks KoolAid. Stir well, add dipe. Put flame on medium and let soak for 45-60 mins.
I made sure I kept the entire dipe under, so no corners would peek out of the mix and get less dye on, kwim?
Afterwards I rinsed mine w/cool water and washed like usual. I had no bleeding experiences with either one of them. (I dyed red, orange, blue and lime green to come! )
HTH!

HTH!
I added a cup of vinegar too when I added the koolaid. I was telling Val (or someone?) that I was REALLY tempted to buy more BG just so I could dye them ... and they are NOT my favorite diapers at all!
