Do you regularly wear a ton of black? I’m talkin’ all black everything, black from head to toe. Whether this is your daily self-imposed uniform or you just have a ton of black clothes, you’re probably eyeing the upcoming summer months with a sense of dread. We all know that dark colored clothes absorb more heat than light colored ones, meaning that black should be the worst color you could possibly wear when the weather warms up.
Whip Up A Coffee Dye You already know a splash of coffee can stain light-colored clothes. But have you ever thought of using your morning cup to create a homemade dye? To whip up a simple, natural and waste-free dye, steep used coffee grounds in hot water for 10 minutes or until the water turns to a medium-brown color. Then remove the grounds with a mesh strainer, reserving your dye for later use.
