But that brown? Although the water was clear when I took it out of the microwave, it just ran and ran and ran when I washed it. So it got lighter than it was, but it's a lot darker than the sans-vinegar try. I mixed the dye a lot thicker and it just soaked it up - I'm sure the vinegar is responsible. The dark pink came out a lot brighter too (though I'm sure it will tone down when it's dry.) It's outside drying now. I ran out of plastic wrap as I pulled off the second sheet (whoopsie!) and one of my rubber gloves has a hole in the finger (didn't know) so I will make a supply run and then come back home for round 3.
