First thing first, for the love of your table, cover it with newsprint-glossy would be best. Then top with at minimum one of your rattiest, clean up towels. I happen to have an impressive collection of these.

Get the set up arranged, dyes activated and generally ready to work. I used an old shirt of mine as an example of what we were about to do.

Are you seeing the spots on the red towel? It soaked through and onto the paper-which saved my table top.

Ta-Da!!! Shirts are clean, and dry. The white spaces filled in with a light shade of the lightest color. I’m very pleased with the results; more importantly the girls LOVE their new shirts.
