100 Day Project Day 14

Quick Links: On Day 9 I went over how to make plarn. On Day 11 I did an experiment with adding paint to plastic bags to make colored plarn.

*Update: This is part one of a four-part project. Read parts two, three, and four.

*Update 2: Since this post, I’ve made an all-in-one post about removing ink, coloring, and making plarn. Read it here.

*Note: Target bags (and I assume red ink in general) are just kind of not worth the effort it takes to get the ink off of them in my opinion. It’s just a bit of a nightmare.

Day 14 of The 100 Day Project: today I did a more thorough experiment with removing ink from plastic bags for making plarn.

I added windex into the mix this time and recorded better notes about how well each application worked. 

I made a quick and dirty chart for what works best to remove each ink color, but I’m planning a bigger plarn-centric post this week so I’m not going to go into much detail today.

Until then, here’s a basic reference chart:
