Hi! I need some help figuring out what to do with my ugly sweater.
I worked over the summer for a charity organization, and we got custom screen printed crewneck sweatshirts at the end of the summer. They're great and all, I'm so happy to have a memento, but our assistant director chose bright baby pink sweatshirts with sparkling antique gold lettering against the warnings of the rep from the company we ordered from, and plot twost- they're ugly . The screenprint design isn't bad, I like the sparkles, and I'd like to wear this sweater without cringing, so I'm thinking about dying it.
I've never dyed before, so I'm looking for advice before I get started. It's a 50/50 polyester/cotton blend. I read that multi-purpose dyes like rit will change the color of the screen printing, does anyone know if you can use fiber reactive dyes on a poly/cotton blend? And does anyone have color suggestions to dye over baby pink that'll still look decent with dark gold? I'm thinking oxblood/maroon but I'm not sure how well it'll cover the pink.
I appreciate any help!
Tldr; the pink and gold polyester/cotton crewneck I got from work is ugly, what kind/color of dye could I use to salvage it?
Here's an image of the colors together-
I stupidly put my striped (light blue & white) bikini in the wash with a Very Red beach towel, and now it has turned a horrid pink.
Is there a way I could reverse it? Not expecting it to be white and shiny again, but at least remove the stains a little bit.
Specifically, I have a 2014 GMC Sierra. I call it my silver snail because there's so much dead space in the accelerator that it practically feels like a big dually trying to take off. I would think it's got relatively too low miles (~70k) for it to be something that would've broken or started to malfunction but rather just the way it was manufactured.
How do I remove the dead space? Or would it be better to just try and raise the engine idle speed? The most extensive auto work I've ever done is change a rotor and brake pads, so you may have to explain it extra simply for me to understand.
I've found 2 different forum posts that mention this, but I was wondering if either one should be followed for my particular vehicle or if it's a different method for a Sierra.
Recently moved into a new apartment and I've been having some bugs come into my room due to wider gaps between the baseboards and hardwood. I'm on the ground floor and my room is not in the middle of the apartment so I think the gaps leave the room exposed to the exterior.
