FFTA-Tie Dye Washing Instructions

Grades > Pre-K to 8

Students were sent home on Friday 9/30, with a bag containing their tie dye shirt or item.

If they chose NOT to tie dye their Fall for the Arts Shirt, it will be coming home soaked in soda ash; all shirts have been pre-soaked to prepare for tie dying. The soda ash solution can be washed out in a regular washing cycle. 

For Tie Dyed Shirts: 

The shirts still have wet dye on them, so please do not open the bag until you are ready to wash. 

Washing Instructions:

Allow your shirt to soak for at least 24 hours to allow for full color saturation. 

  1. Remove the rubber bands and rinse the shirt in the sink or with a hose to remove excess dye. 

  2. Wash alone with hot water. Remove immediately. 

  3. Dry on a high heat setting* or hang dry. 

*Heat helps the dye set on the first wash. To prevent fading, use cold water in future washes.
