Soak, Line Dry, Display. Don't wash after soaking or much of it will wash away... I use it on my spider web every year.

What's RIT and W&B?
RIT is a name brand of fabric dyes. The W&B is for whitener & brightener - not bleach - does just what the name says.

Using the W&B it is possible to get stuff to glow under backlight.

I personally just use really cheap detergent or fabric softener that has the phosphors and don't rinse (same technique - soak, and air dry) but the Rit stuff works very well. :)

I bought some generic woolite from the dollar store, mixed it up into a half/half with water and put it in a fine mist spray bottle. I mist my FCG with the blacklight on to see the coverage in action and touch up spots I missed.

The RIT stuff would be better, but I'm not wanting a super-duper glow. ;)

I used the stovetop-cooking method of W&B on my store-bought rope spiderweb & got a great glow from the blacklight. This is good for small amounts of fabric, large impact (glow). Not sure, but would probably have to use a pretty big pot for standard bedsheets I think.

Can someone help me with how much Rit is needed for something like an FCG?

How much cheesecloth can one box of RIT dye?

I'm not sure how much it can treat, but I just finished a twin bed sheet and 2 36 x 6 yard packages of cheesecloth with 1 box in a 5 gallon bucket of hot water and have PLENTY (as in gallons) left.

Walmart has it in laundry soap section, also craft stores like Michael's and Hobby Lobby. They were sold a out a lot of places I checked this year. Finally they got some more in at my Walmart last week.
+1 for Walmart! I stocked up for next year too.
