    coloring towels

    I have tried to color dish towels, they look good but, I am wondering if I need to be careful when I wash them.It was really fun and something I can use.

    What do you mean by ( coloring) them? Did you use a good quality fabric dye, soda ash and follow instructions, laundering them when finished? Or did you use some other process? Or coloring medium?
    Iduy a lot of fabrics. I use the fabrics and they are laundered as needed. Colors hold up well. I use fiber reactive dyes from Dharma Trading Company.

    The thing about coloring with crayons ( heat set) launder gently, with cold water...when they fade you just grab the crayons & revive them.
