does anyone like RIT dye? 
I am wanting to do some small amount of tie-dying and have been reading that most folks don't like RIT dye, but I don't expect a lot out of it, but want fairly good results. 

(I am not sure if my local craft store sells the "good" stuff and am pretty immediate results kinda person so ordering and waiting for it to arrive is something that is difficult for me.)

thanks, any help would be appriciated!

OK so I am going to buy some Procion fiber reactive dye.  I guess I will have to wait while they ship it to me!

I have used the RIT dye twice, both on the stove top.  But I haven't tried using it as a tie-dye.  The second time I tried it though, it turned kind of tie-dye.  But the first time, I got a nice solid saturated color.  I am not sure if I would recommend it or not.

My mom and brother and I used to use RIT dyes to do tie-dye projects as kids. Everything came out very bright and great at first, but they faded really quickly and we ended up with pastels in the long run. (Contrary to what one would expect, it was my brother who kept wearing his pale pink and baby-blue t-shirt, while I stuck mine in the back of a drawer as soon as it lost its luster.)
