It’s time to illuminate your laundry experience with this pretty little pouch. With the help of Lumi’s innovative, sunlight-activated inkodye, we customized this simple delicates bag with gorgeous pastels and silhouettes to give your unmentionables a reason to shout. Use it for the wash, or to stow your lingerie when you travel…and of course it makes a great Valentine’s Day gift!
To create: Apply an even, thin coat of Lumi inkodye to the muslin bag in a dim environment. Blot off excess dye with a paper towel, (you want the fabric to be damp, not soaking wet) this prevents the print from blurring. Place lingerie onto the coated surface of the bag. Pin your fabric using push pins for extra security. Inkodye develops its color in sunlight or bright UV. Leave bag with lingerie exposed for approximately 10 to 20 minutes on a bright day (we recommend doing this between 11 am to 2 pm when the sun is overhead) to develop the ink. For a softer pastel color (as shown in the images above), underexpose the ink for 3 to 5 minutes or dilute the ink with water. Remove the lingerie in a dim area and wash the bag with inkowash in your washing machine set on hot to make your print permanent. For more information visit http://lumi.co/guides/shadow.
