I do not believe I have ever been as pleased with a "do-it-yourself" sort of project as when I used this dye. I have "tea-dyed" many pieces of my clothing before, but never with color dye. I purchased this Tintex dye from Re-Run's Vintage Warehouse for a dollar, and was a bit uneasy at first about the power dye. I waited for a warmer day, during my spring break, to use this dye on a few articles of clothing that had been stained or tinted pink from washing with red items. The dying was an extremely simple process (just add the power in very warm water, stir, let sit, wash dye out, hang to dry, then iron/wash.) and the results of the color were wonderful. The socks and the tights were by far my favorites.
I am feeling the "after spring-break nervous about grades/midterms/etc" student vibe currently. This is normally the time in which I start to "buckle down" with my college life. These factors usually cause me to drink much more coffee (second pot today, in fact), sleep considerably less, and stress much more. At these times, I always keep in mind that having stress and deadlines is not a bad thing, but more of a way to keep me on track and focused... along with watching education documentaries that remind me of my purpose of all the homework and readings I have to endure.
