Natural Dyeing Recipe: Spinach
I used spinach because I was hoping to get greens. And I read that it’s possible if iron is added. But disposable of the dye bath would have been difficult and it’s toxic, so I decided to chance it and not use iron.
A bag of spinach
1/2 cup salt
2 tbs white vinegar
Strainer / cheesecloth
- Add everything to the pot and bring to a boil
- Reduce to dimmer, simmer for about 1 hour
- Let cool before straining
- Adjust pH as desired
Looking back at my notes, I realised the original recipe I had written down didn’t require water. But I added it anyway, so maybe I could have gotten greens had I not added the water. Who knows! But if you try it, please share your results!!
