What you’ll need:
White vinegar
White clothes
Large pots
Bowls for dye
Rubber bands

Step 1: Find a large pot and boil ¾ pot of water and ¼ pot of white vinegar. Then add white clothes into the pot and allow to simmer for an hour.
Step 2: Chop the beets into large chunks and place into another pot of boiling water. In a second pot of boiling water, add blueberries and blackberries. In a third pot of boiling water, measure out two tablespoons of turmeric and pour in. Allow these pots to simmer for an hour as well.
Step 3: Drain boiling water out of the first pot with white clothes. Separate white clothes and run cool water over them to lower their temperature. Next, bunch the clothes up into a ball and begin placing rubber bands around it.
Step 4: Take the other three pots and strain the dye into three separate bowls large enough to dye the clothes in. Take each white piece of clothing and place it in the turmeric for yellow, blueberries and blackberries for purple, and beets for pink. Let the clothes sit for 30 minutes.
Step 5: Remove the clothes from the dyes and rinse with cool water. Hang the clothes to dry, then wear!
