  • What can we do about stains on naturally dyed clothing?
    Please understand natural dyes is that they are alive. The colors changes in different lighting and most colors are flattering on our skin tones. It is very beautiful. However, they are susceptible to accidental staining from acidic food, such as lemon juice and vinegar. Citrus juice will temporarily bleach the fabric, but when it happened, try soaking the stained clothing in cool water with some neutral washing liquid added. Then rise off. Never bleach, nor rub too hard, it will make it worst Also please be aware, some stains that are difficult to remove may actually contain tannins, so they are in fact dyes! Tea stains are notoriously hard to remove and that’s because tea is actually a dye. When you stain naturally dyed clothing and you don’t feel you can wear it anymore as it is, there’s not much that you can do but camouflage the stain. You could try dyeing it a darker color, but often a stain will continue to grin through. Adding a new pattern is probably the best way to distract from a stain. Here are a few options: Hammer leaves over the clothing to create a simple pattern that covers or distracts from the stain Paint a pattern across the fabric with a darker dye. Using diluted soya or almond milk, paint a simple pattern on the fabric, wait a few days for the milk to cure, then redye the entire garment. The milk painted areas will dye darker. You could make strategic use of spots or dashes to distract from your stain(s).
