I have this nice new t-shirt that has, to my chagrin, acquired a mysterious permanent sort of stain. I’ve washed it a couple times to no effect. Today I brought it by the dry-cleaner and asked the lady there if she thought they could get it out. She said she didn’t think so. Bummed that I can’t wear this shirt to work after owning for only a couple months, I said, “Well, maybe I’ll dye it.”
The dry-clean lady said, “Oh no, don’t do that.”
I asked her why not. She just repeated that I shouldn’t do it. Her English wasn’t very good and I thought maybe she couldn’t express why it wasn’t a good plan.
Does anyone have any experience with dying clothes? The shirt is pink, I was thinking of attempting a nice dark red. Is this idea doomed to failure?
