Do you keep the rubber bands in after tie dyeing?
I think once the dye is dry, you take them out.
No, the only purpose for the rubber bands is for the tie dyeing process, but you need to take them out to actually wear the shirt.
Not if you want to wear it.
dip the shirt in the dye, then take it out, and wear rubber gloves to take the bands out, then hang the shirt up to dry.
I let shirt dry a bit before I remove mine
