While Your Camper is at Camp
And what you may be curious about!

Tye dye has to set, so if your camper does tye dye late in the week you’ll have to do a bit of washing when you get home for the best tye dye result:
Unwrap rubber bands and hang to dry completely
Once dry, wash (without other laundry) in cold water with ⅓ cup white vinegar per pound of fabric; around 3-4 tbsp per shirt
Hang or tumble dry (without other laundry)
You’re good to go! Some folks like to wash once more with detergent for good measure but it is not required.
