Every step of the process takes forever. First you dissolve tablets in water to make a fixing solution [for garment to make sure color adheres] (1-2 hours). Then you soak item to be dyed (30 minutes - the longer you soak, the better your results will be). Then you dissolve color tablets in water to make the original dyes (1-2 hours). This is before you introduce one color to the item you're dyeing. The tie dye cylinder container is barely big enough for a single child's size XS undershirt. When you twist it in the container to squirt in the dye, the dye ends up in unintended places because you cannot see where exactly it ends up. My daughter wanted to to do a blue and yellow tie dye - the color blue/green ended up throughout the garment. The yellow showed up vividly in both armpits, making it seem like sweat stains. The colors themselves were vivid upon removal and drying, but faded significantly, by about 80%, with first cold water wash. Finally, there was supposed to be enough product to do 12 dyed products. Unless those products were 6 pairs of socks, I don't see how. The two packets of fixing mixture enabled us to do 5 little kids shirts. This product is supposed to lessen the mess of tie dying. I found this to be untrue. It dripped colored water out the bottom and holes throughout the night of soaking. The directions advise you to use plastic gloves (not included).
