River clean up in Polk County. Event held Saturday, October 15 at 9am -12pm in Rockmart, Ga. For more information please contact Randy Cook via phone at 678-246-1063 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Allow your shirt to soak for at least 24 hours to allow for full color saturation.
Remove the rubber bands and rinse the shirt in the sink or with a hose to remove excess dye.
Wash alone with hot water. Remove immediately.
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.
