If it does, there goes the price of Rit dyes.  :)  Brings me back to
childhood where I recall Mom dying things every once in a while....boiling
a large pot on the stove and soaking something (can't recall what she was
dyeing)  Probably some curtians....seems she was always doing something
with curtians, those flimsy looking things she stretched on some big
frames to dry. Everything must have been white in those days before Martha
Stewart. :)  Yes, that's it...some young punk asked me one day if
the world in the 1950's was black and white, like TV.  Or maybe it
was my trousers, trying to get another year out of them by replacing the
fading :)  Later, while in the Navy, I went to the Laundry mat to wash my
whites.  When I took them out, they were all a nice shade of green...seems
the person before me had dyed something in the washer...was the 1st guy on
earth to have colored boxers that matched his uniforms. :) Hummm, maybe
that's why my sub concious mind led me into Histology :)

This may be one for the "Biological Stain Commission"  :)
