Do you love avocados? Turns out all of those pits you've been tossing can be a beautiful DIY to turn boring fabric into something gorgeously pink-hued. When the avo pits are boiled, they release a milky, tannin-rich liquid that's deep ruby red. When simple white fabrics are left to soak in this natural dye, they turn beautiful shades of pink. To make avocado pit-dyed fabric, simply toss a few clean pits into water, add your fabric and bring to a boil. Let simmer for a few minutes until the dye is released, then turn off the heat; let it sit overnight before removing the freshly dyed fabric.
