It’s product review time again and this time we are taking a look at Tie Dye Kit I ordered off Amazon. I was hoping Jack would like it… but I underestimated his reaction because he absolutely LOVED this kit and has been wearing his tie dye shirts non-stop since we made them.
This is the exact kit we bought off Amazon: Tulip One-Step 5 Color Tie-Dye Kit for $19.99
The kit includes:
- 5 squeeze bottles pre-filled with dye powder (yellow, red, purple, blue and green)
- 5 refill packets of dye powder (yellow, red, purple, blue and green)
- Rubber bands
- Instructions on how to do a variety of dye styles
I also ordered this set of 5 Hanes Boy’s T-shirts to dye for $7.50.
We filled up the 5 bottles of powdered dye with water and they lasted us through dying 6 shirts, with plenty left to probably do at least 4 more shirts. AND we still have all the refill dye powder packs left, so this kit certainly gave us some bang for our buck.
Jack decided to do a variety of tie dying styles – one with stripes, one crumpled, one in your classic starburst pattern, etc. In order to keep the colors contained and not all over my house, we dyed the shirts in the laundry tub. After each shirt was finished, I put it in a plastic grocery bag and stuck it out of the way until the next morning.
I washed each shirt out by hand in the laundry tub to get most of the extra color out and then did a load of laundry. Oh and in addition to Jack’s 5 shirts, I also threw in an off-white shirt of my own that needed a little extra color. And here’s what we ended up with:
We had SO MUCH FUN with this kit. Since we kept it all in the laundry sink, we didn’t make much of a mess. The shirts all turned out so fantastic and Jack loves that he made them himself.
I would highly recommend this kit for a fun quarantine activity. Or just a fun summer activity with your kid(s) or… even by yourself because tie dye is apparently super fashionable again!

One thought on “Craft Review: Tie Dye Kit”
Ah,I remember doing these back when I was a teen. I loved doing this! so much fun. My husband and I were just talking about things we could do during this time, and were thinking this might be fun. So, it is funny that you would mention this.
Jack looks great in his shirts. This is really a great idea! Thanks, have a good day.
