The water from preparing black beans always turns such a dark purple and I’ve wondered if it would make a good fabric dye. When I started making dinner last night I just grabbed a hopelessly stained shirt and tied it up with rubber bands.
This first photo is before I poured the second half of the black water in. I let it soak for about three hours. And here is my tie-dye shirt after I rinsed and washed it. Cute, and you can’t really find the stains any more. woo hoo!
