  1. Prep your fabric. Combine 4 cups of water and 1/4 cup of white vinegar in a stock pot. Bring it to a boil, add fabric, then let it simmer for 30 minutes.
  2. Remove fabric and discard the solution. Combine 8 cups of water with 6 tablespoons of turmeric. Bring to a boil and let it simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Add your fabric back into the pot and let it simmer on very low heat for one hour.
  4. Drain, rinse well—and get ready for your party!
