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.

You need:
A bag of spinach
1/2 cup salt
2 tbs white vinegar
Strainer / cheesecloth

  1. Add everything to the pot and bring to a boil
  2. Reduce to dimmer, simmer for about 1 hour
  3. Let cool before straining
  4. 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!!

Share what you’ve made on Instagram with #trywonder, I’d love to see what you’re up to!
