Good Idea: Dying my new chiton the most amazing shade of indigo blue.
Bad Idea: Forgetting that I had done so, being tired and lazy and overwhelmed by the stench wafting from the Pennsic laundry bag, dumping everything into the wash, and turning all of my husband's unbleached linen chitons a lovely shade of robin's egg blue.
Here's hoping a lot of hot water and some bleach will save the day.
Also, why is it that when you WANT to dye linen, it staunchly refuses, but one trip through the laundry and voila! Perfectly dyed. Logic, it fails me.
