I’ll Have Both…Please.
I Need to Dye/Stain/Age the New Whiter Than White Duvet.
The Duvet Pattern is a Map of Old New York.
I love white bedding but the white duvet isn’t working with the Old World Look of the Master.
It Looks Too Sparkly New.
So I’m going to Try a Tea Stain.
Maple Tea from Canada. Perfect. Loved the Smell. The Taste…Not So Much.
Did You Know 12 Teabags makes a really dark brew?
Let it Seep and Cool. The Smell is Quite Nice.
Pop the White Duvet and Shams into the Washer.
Then Pour the Tea Brew into the Top Loader Washer. Scary? A Little.
Do One Wash Cycle.
It Works. But I Think Still Too White. Let’s Hang it Out to Dry and See What Happens.
No. Not Enough Stain.
There’s Still Plenty of Sunshine Left in the Day, So On To Phase Two…
Very, Very Strong Coffee. I Lost Count on the Scoops.
Just like the Polar Express Coffee…You Know, the Coffee with the Old Sock.
Into the Washer. One Wash Cycle. Hang to Dry.
Parchment Paper Map Perfect.
I’m amazed that the Washer Dye Technique Left No Blotches or Uneven Color.
Tea and Coffee. Really?
Yes! And the Washer is Fine after Two “Palate Cleansings” of Bleach. 🙂
A Little Decorating Magic.
