I wonder if this would work as a hair rinse

It's definitely cheaper than hair dye!

This is a very nice idea, especially for pattern making. I dyed some cloth before, but without the vinegar rise and it still worked. Next time i will do that and also the heat setting step:)

Great fabric, sky turtle!  I thought for a minute it was just newspaper.  The stain adds a great edge to it, too.

hello, i past the weekend getting fun bleaching and paiting some clothing... i uses tie/dye technic to bleach an old 501 levi's dark blue jeans, then i put them in the coffee for 2 hours... now i have to ironing the pants and then i want to brush this coffee paint in the top and the bottom parts... now the efect is so cool, tomorrow i will use the coffee paint... i will tell u about the results... i put some curry in water and i make it boil, i had a sauce very thicky i think i will paint a t-shirt but if it is too much thick may i add some vinager to make it more liquid? and i used the red wine to coloured a linen white shirt (GAS) doing some shadows the efect is so nice but to add a plain colour surface on the top may i use beet sauce, do u know the right process? thanks a lot

Very cool!!

Many years ago someone gifted me a set of 100% polyester curtains, in harsh, blinding white. I was wearing a coffee stained t-shirt at the time, and I thought, if coffee can stain by accident, let's see what happens if I stain these curtains intentionally. So I made two pots of extra dark brew and dropped the curtains in overnight. The next day I pulled them out and washed them in cool water and dried them in the dryer. They came out a lovely, mottled off-white color, and the color stuck for years.

Ooooooohhhhhh! Cheesy My mom and i love coffee, we have a ton given to us ... thats flavored and cheap so it doesnt taste good, would flavored coffee work too? Sure it would right? ..... thinking of ideas....


I LOVE LOVE LOVE the clutch too! Its gorgeous!!

I don't see why not.  The flavor doesn't usually add any color to the drink, so I don't think it should alter the color of the dye.  Let me know!
Thanks!  I love the clutch, too.  It'll be hard to part with, but I can always make more!!!

No color is usually not added to coffee drinks, but flavored coffees might contain sugars or milk solids that will make the fabric sticky unless it's washed out
