Not being much a of a domestic goddess, i don't know how to dye clothes. I've got a big pile of babygrows and bibs which DD stained a range of browns and oranges in her youth. I want to pep them up with some lovely bright colours before the new bab arrives. -Any tips? Thanks.

You could also tie dye (Flame is good at that I think, or google for instructions)

I did this with some of DS's white stuff for DD using a Dylon machine dye. The only probs is that the bits that are stained can pick up more/less dye than other bits. So tie dying would have been good to hide that. Also I did lilac which really didn't suit DDs complexion and looked like she was in blue in her birth pictures. And the poppers on babygros don't dye.

But worht it anyway.

i did that machine-dye thing too, it worked well on cream (ish) and white (very ish) clothes. did some between DS1 & DS2, picked a decent mid-shade of blue i.e. not pale baby-blue, and it was fine. Not brave enough to do any for DD after 2 boys hmm for fear of wierd shades of purple
