Dye plain napkins by hand for a designer look.
YOU WILL LOVE
Following the packet instructions, pour each fabric dye into a
separate bowl. Dip a napkin almost to the top with a quick
in-and-out motion. Dip the napkin again, this time halfway up, and
leave it in the dye for 10 seconds. Finally, dip the bottom of the
napkin, holding it in the dye for two minutes for a stronger hue.
Rinse it with cold water and hang up to dry.
