Dye offers many opportunities for the clever housewife to introduce color into her home. Old fabrics may be freshened or their color changed by the use of dye. A new and interesting bit of home decoration may be added by a tied-dyed pillow or a small piece of batik. Dyes may be obtained now that do not stain vessels, or permanently stain the hands. This new feature makes dyeing a pleasure to many who formerly considered it an irksome task. The woman who takes the time to make a study of the factors and principles involved in successful dyeing, will find she can do many interesting things. With a few colors and a knowledge of color theory, shades not listed on the color card may be obtained.
