Oh hey! Welcome back! We’re so excited to be here for another blog post. You might have seen our tie-dye video a couple of weeks back (and if you haven’t don’t worry we’ll link it down below). Today we'll be recapping the video, but also giving you some tips we wish we knew when we started our fun project. And don’t you think we forgot about the giveaway! We’ll be telling you about that information too!
LAKI News: We tie-dyed!
Our team had the best time tie-dying our jogger sets, they turned out so cute, and I personally cannot stop wearing mine. Not only did it turn out super cute, but it’s also the perfect solution to a nasty stain on your perfectly white ALTA jogger set. However, before you get tie-dying here are some tips we learned from our own tie-dying experience.
Our 4 Tips:
- Wear clothes you don’t care for.
- Wet the clothes.
- Cover the clothing piece.
- Wash it!
Number One: Wear clothes you don’t care for.
This one’s kind of obvious, but a good thing to know if you don’t already! You’re working with clothing dye, so it’s definitely going to stain if you accidentally spill or splash. We suggest wearing an old t-shirt and pants.
Number Two: Wetting the clothes.
Before you dye the clothes you gotta get them wet, but if they’re too wet, the dye’s gonna bleed (and not in a cute way). Those clothes should be DAMP, not completely wet.
Number Three: Cover it in dye.
Once you’ve wrapped it in rubber bands, you’re going to want to put A LOT of dye on it. When you’re putting the dye on it’s going to look like it’s covered, but once unwrapped you’ll notice that you didn’t put enough dye on the clothing. It’s really easy to miss a huge chunk if you’re not careful. So when we say to cover it in dye, I guess we mean drench it in dye. Trust me, we wish we had.
Number Four: Wash it...A couple of times.
Everyone knows that you have to wash the piece of clothing once you’re done dying it, but you should probably wash alone at least 2-3 times. The dye is going to bleed in the wash, and if you stick it with the other clothes, chances are you’ll end up with some extra colorful clothes.

In the future I would like to see workouts and people wearing laki and sweating it in to show full effect!
I love all the exercise tips y’all share and I think it’d be super cool to have a food section on the blog! Since fitness is part exercise, part diet and y’all are already killing the exercise part, it would be fun to have somewhere to share recipes or tips and tricks for eating healthier!
I love this brand and am excited to buy more items! Money has just been tight lately so I’ve been patiently waiting till I can buy more Laki active 😅! I think it would be cool to hear about you guys a little more let us know about your dreams for this company and how you have been achieving them. I’m also interested in outdoor/in home workouts! Quick easy work outs for people who are busy or struggle with exercising. Healthy easy meals are always nice to have. Maybe some random health/exercise facts could be fun as well!
I would love to see you include photos on your website of multiple models for each item who are different sizes/ body types & what size they are wearing! I always have the hardest time figuring out what size to order (I have a small waist and big thighs — it’s a struggle) so I think being able to see different body types would be super helpful!
I’d love to see more fitness tips and motivators!
