We love the art of upcycling using waste from our kitchen! In Royal Chundu Homeschool Lesson #28, we’re cooking with clothes! Or socks, sheets or pillowcases, curtains or towels.

Using spices like that golden goddess, tumeric and veggie scraps such as beetroot, you can add colour and new life to old garments by making a natural dye ~ chemical-free, earth-friendly!

Bath your item in a pot of cold water (3 or so litres) together with salt (1/4 cup) and vinegar (1 cup) to fix the colour.

Take a look at this fun new lesson and the many kinds of plant and spice products you can use for natural dyes and try your hand at sprucing up your closet!
