SO sun faded. . .by the Midwestern sun—?
I’m well versed
-even prepared for-
the harsh Arizona sun-damage… but the Midwest sun—huh?
You can see for yourself (at right) just how faded the umbrellas are—in ONE season!
So the umbrellas are getting a fresh washing & DYE JOB !
Who says only Easter eggs get dyed—?
1st- I removed the umbrella covers,
then, popped ’em in the washer to freshen them…
(I actually like to wash them fresh EACH season!)
*I always screw/hammer the cap back on so not to lose (or damage) it.
While the umbrella covers were in the wash, I prepped a tub of fresh water and Rit Dye –Lemon Yellow– and stirred it in well.
This is where I left things for the night—
leaving all five covers to—marinate.
