A few weeks ago, I found myself struggling to get a Kool Aid stain out of my daughter’s shirt. It ended up having a happy ending, but at one point, before I was able to get the stain out, I had actually considered just dying the entire thing pink using the exact Kool Aid that stained it in the first place. (you can read about how she even got Kool Aid on her shirt in the first place here.)
That whole adventure led me to this idea, which worked beautifully, and so I am sharing it with you here today:
