Tie Dye T-Shirts with Sharpie Markers! It was Red Ribbon week at my daughter's school this week and their first dress up day was tie dye t-shirts and wouldn't you know she didn't have anything tie dye in her closet.
So we decided to do a little art project together and make something with what we had on hand. I have seen several different examples and directions for this on the internet so we took what we found from various searches and modified it just a little bit. Here's what you'll need and the steps we followed: Pre-washed white or light colored t-shirt (cotton takes color great)Rubbing Alcohol (Note: mine was 91%. If your alcohol has a lower percentage it may not work as well)Liquid dropper (we used an old medecine dropper)Small plastic cup(s)... really we only needed oneRubber bandsVariety of colored Sharpies (we stuck to color wheel colors, no brown or black) **** Extra Embellishment: (fabric, scissors, iron on paper, and an iron) - we made a sparkley peace sign to put in the center of the shirt.

I don’t know about you, but I was feeling ready to start some serious spring cleaning. This year, I decided to try some new (more effective) cleaning solutions using materials I already had (in true Picklee fashion of course!). I couldn’t be happier with the outcome of my cleaning experiments. From simple shower cleaners, to carpet stain removers, to wrinkle release spray, I found that not only were these DIY solutions much cheaper , but they worked SO MUCH BETTER too!

Polymers are very long chains of repeating units.
