Customer Reviews

Great Project! Review by Scott Engelman

The first time I used this kit, there was a bit of a learning curve. Collecting all the different containers, and then figuring out which solution went into which container, was a little confusing the first time. Now that I have done this kit for a few years, it is a breeze! The only thing I would change is: Make the DVD presentation available online. From an environmental standpoint, DVDs have become wasteful and obsolete. Other than that, I highly recommend this project! (Posted on 5/27/14)

Fantastic Review by Camilla

I used the kit with my 4/5 year old preschool class - they loved it, so proud of their shirts! Their parents loved it. Everyone commented that they'd never seen such clean, intense colors. Really hoping there is a refill kit option for next year! (Posted on 5/22/14)

tie dye Review by JoAnn Schapp

My students loved doing the tie dye. I will do this again because it is so engaging for students plus the procedure is so mess free. My main problem was that I had students who have bigger hands than my glove size available. Is it possible to just purchase the dyes for next year? (Posted on 5/13/13)

Great Results! Review by Cristy

Our students had such a great time with this tie-dye kit. I remember tie-dying shirts when I was young and we never got the results that we got from this kit. The bold colors were outstanding and the directions were very simple to follow! (Posted on 4/17/13)

Greatest dying method I've used!! Review by LaDonna Ferguson

I love this kit! My 3 science classes (75 kids) plus my GS troop and family have had great experiences with your technique and we are wowed by the vibrant colors of these dyes!! Custom service has been great about getting me refills for my kit, too:) Thanks again Spangler Science!!! (Posted on 2/28/13)

Tie Dye Review by Shannon Keene

I purchased a total of 4 kits for my Art teacher. He was making these shirts for our 3rd grade field day and several teachers. Everyone LOVED much so that most days 3rd grade is dressed in tie dye shirts! :) My teacher found your instructions easy to follow and sparked a lot of creativity. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.

Over the Rainbow!!! Review by Kelli Higgins

Your tie-dye classroom kit was AWESOME and so easy to use. The DVD made it all quite clear. The kids did a great job following the steps, and I can't wait to give them back their shirts. (Posted on 12/3/12)

Best tie dye kit! Review by Paula

My family loves to tie dye and this is the best kit we have tried. The dye colors are vibrant and stay strong even after several washings! (Posted on 10/27/12)

Great product and awesome results! Review by Ammie Thomas

This is the 2nd year we have tie dyed shirts for our Vacation Bible School. The kids look forward to this and can't wait to see the finished shirt! Thanks for making this an inexpensive craft with amazing results! And the parents and kids love the fact that they last and don't fade!
For those of you that have the start up kit, Steve Spangler offers the refill kits too!
Great product!! (Posted on 9/29/12)

Great! Review by Nancy B.

During the last week of school we tie-dyed with 50 third graders. They loved it and wore their shirts on the last day of school. Your kit made it so easy to use. My only recommendation to others would be to not do this activity on an early dismissal day... LOL! Will be doing this again next year. Thanks for all your great activities!!! (Posted on 8/7/12)

Awesome kit! Review by Shannon

I just used this kit for a group of 10-11 yr old Girl Scouts and it was perfect. The DVD was terrific, easy to follow and the girls all used the suggested t-shirt folding techniques and they worked as shown on the DVD. The colors are so vibrant and bright, even after washing. The pipettes are great to put the color on the shirts and the kids were able to do the project independently which was great for them. Definitely would use again and plan to in the future!

Exceptional! Review by Chris

We ordered this class room kit for my daughters 6th birthday party- we had a ball! Over 20 kids made shirts and we had dye to spare. Everyone was impressed by the boldness of the colors and how easy they were to make. I agree with other reviewers that a refill kit would be nice- we are making plans to tie dye again for the kids at church:o)
On a side note, I was pleasantly surprised by the FANTASTIC customer service I received from Steve Spangler Science- many thanks! (Posted on 6/22/12)

Please create a refill kit Review by Kirsten Anderson

I love this kit, but I need to be able to buy refill dyes for it. I don't need any more pipettes or dvds! (Posted on 6/5/12)

Tie dye kit Review by Mary Reel

We need 2 more options with the tie dye kit that you offer. First, we need a smaller kit to do maybe 10 shirts. Just half the size. We are wanting to do smaller groups. Second, we need a kit that is for those of us who have bought the kit so many times that I have the how to on 4 tapes and 3 DVDs. I also have pipettes running out my ears! (Posted on 5/1/12)

Tie Dye Wonders Review by Sandra Raymond

Have ordered this kit 3 times now; taught a summer science camp for all ages and the kids thought the shirts and the experience was great. Did it again last fall for my kindergarten class....great success! Thanks so much for all your help! (Posted on 4/11/12)

WOW factor Review by Joan Huhn

I did this activity with my preschool class about 3 years ago and it was a HUGE hit. Talk about no-fail! I had lots of helpful moms. I am going back to teaching and ordering the kit again anticipating another fun, fun result. We learn so much about color mixing and patience. (Posted on 3/18/12)

Awesome Color Review by Karen

Our Community Center uses the Steve Spangler Science products for classes. My daughter loves all of the products. The tie dye product is wonderful - the colors are beautiful and HOLD after washings! (Posted on 1/26/12)
