Tye Dying a Black Towel DIY
For the first time ever, we tried to tie dye a black towel. But not just bleach tie dye the black towel, bleach it and then tie dye over it with color. To be honest, we were really unsure what to expect or how the bleach would overall affect the tie dye in the end. Now that its over, I would say that
- It takes a little time because you have to go through the bleach process first
- It was totally worth it and we would do it again!
Tie Dying Products
Before you get started, you need a few products for the project:
- Black Towel (we got ours at Target)
- Tie Dye Kit – We recommend this one because it has a ton of colors
Reverse tie dying, or bleaching black (or a any other color) is its own set of tie dying techniques. Depending on the bleach patterns you want, you fold your towel, hoodie, pants (whatever it is you tie dye), tighten REALLY good with string or rubber bands, and then reverse tie dye your pattern.
Once that is done, rinse, and then move on to regular tie dye.

After the bleach is fully rinsed out of the towel (in this case) simply tie dye as normal.
We placed our tie dyed towel into a plastic bag and sealed it for 24 hours before unfolding.
