Knitters, crafters, and other handy types can use a slow cooker to dye fabric or yarn. Place the materials (natural fibers work best) in the slow cooker, and cover with a mixture of four parts water to one part white vinegar. Heat on high until the mixture is steaming, then add food coloring—one drop at a time—until you achieve the desired shade. Let the soupy mix simmer on low for two to four hours, then rinse your threads in warm water and allow to dry thoroughly before using.
