Tea Staining

stain

Hello Jennifer, I am wondering what success I would have in tea staining a 70″ x 78″ red WHITE and blue quilt, and if possible, what would I need to do it? (How many teabags, size tub to accommodate project, etc.) Must I use something to set the staining for future washing? And if this is not advisable, any other suggestions? Thank you very much for your time. Sincerely, Denise

Hi Denise,
I can’t really tell you exactly what to expect, so you are going to have to set up an experiment. Search for tea dyeing on ask.com, then get some muslin approximately the same color as the white in the quilt and try tea dyeing. See if you like the color. Dye a corner of the quilt and see what happens. Soak and wash with OxiCleanĀ® if you don’t like it. have fun!
Here’s a good site to check out,
