I tea stain some of my white bras so they become more of a skin tone colour.

^^interesting!

Softgrey and susie_bubble great job on your projects
I think this is a great idea especially for vintage finds that may
be uneven in coloring, etc... I'm going have to try this out

i stained a crochet waistcoat today and am waiting for it to dry.

i also stained a soft pink silk dress that I have never worn (its too similar to my skin tone) but that didn't turn out so well because i accidentally left one bag in the pot! i may go over it again to see what happens.

this is addicting!@!
haha i am not going have any non-stained clothes/accessories left at this rate!:p

today i bought a gorgeous lilac dress but i also wanted it in this sage green, so i took one of my baby blue tops and dyed it green, it turned out perfectly.

then i did some underwear, a dress, and some shoes!!!!! they are all different colors so they all turned out differently. and i also used Red Zinger Herbal Tea (Celestial Seasonings) on one of my tops, its an intense ruby color so it was so gorgeous!

this thread is awesome, i am so glad someone made it!

Has anyone heard about dying clothing with nettles or birch leaves? My friends are doing it.

Before I go on a staining rampage, what is your experience with washing these? Will the colors run in the water and color other clothes? Does the color get affected by detergent? Thanks!

Wow, this is an exciting topic, all of the results look good, but I especially like how it turned out on an even surface as your tank, Punky...

tea-stained crochet waistcoat

the blouse is already ecru

(and so am I! I realised that actually this colour is a bit hard to wear if you have a yellowy complexion like mine . . .)

the pink turned really dusty, Susie. It was a sort of dark blush, but because I left the bag in, there were big patches of brown, so i sort of buggered it really). other botches included some linen trousers that just didn't take the stain too well. i think knits seem to soak it up best.

What an interesting concept! It made me curious about the technique, and I learned that stainless steel can also be tea stained. I see the application used mostly on decorative pieces like wall sconces, light fixtures and some light furniture.

I also found tea staining used on sea shells, wood, ceramic, bamboo and ivory and other organic materials. Here is a chess set of ivory.
