When we thought we were selling the house I splurged and bought a more up-to-date shower curtain.
Taking advantage of warmer sunny weather for laundry days, had me clearing out yet more linens this weekend; and I found these rugs—held over from the coca-cola-theme days.
Sorry it’s blurry, …but there is no going back now! but you get the idea!
Because I dyed them!
It’s an easy fix for fluffy cotton rugs, that still have some life left in them—except maybe the color is either faded or not suiting your tastes any longer.
Purchase Rit Liquid Dye
…in your choice of color! Purchase enough for your product X dry weight. ( 1 bottle per 2 pounds of fabric)
Following directions for your type of material—cotton or synthetic
Rinse in cold water ‘til the water runs clear.
Wash on warm in the washer with detergent.
…and Bob’s your uncle! Or Brown’s your rug…or whatever color you choose for yourself! Oh yes! lots of fun colors too…
Easy peasy. Just follow the directions on the bottle.
Mine are no longer red and cream now they are a nice warm chocolate-y brown and they look pretty good with my new shower curtain.
What do you think? Do you die? Have you died and had failures? Have you been pretty successful dying? I love the way these look. It only took about an hour and a half, maybe two hours to complete.
The cost of fluffy bathroom rugs can run anywhere from about $8 to $12 dollars for two—from the dollar store; and more if you shop elsewhere.
This cost me less that $4 bucks.
It comes in lots of yummie colors too! already said that… ;)
‘Til next time, blessings!
