About this deal

In a separate container, dissolve 1 cup 240 mL of salt in 4 cups 950 mL of very hot water if dyeing natural fibers like cotton or linen. If dyeing silk or nylon, mix 1 cup 240 mL of white vinegar with 2-4 cups 470-950 mL of hot tap water. Cover work area with plastic table cover and have paper towels handy to protect against any possible spills. Fill a stainless steel pot with enough water for the fabric to move freely. We recommend using 3 gallons 11.5 L of water for every pound 1/2 kilogram of fabric.

Wearing rubber gloves, mix powder or well-shaken liquid dye with 4 cups 950 mL of very hot water. Stir well. Set water temperature to the hottest possible setting and a wash cycle of at least 30 minutes or longer and start the cycle.

Colors

Before dyeing, remove any visible stains on the garment. This will help achieve uniform color results when dyeing. Pre-wash item in warm, soapy water. This helps to remove any finishes that may interfere with dye absorption. Leave damp and set aside.

Fiber content and weight effect how color appears. If you are in doubt as to whether your fabric will accept dye or achieve the color you want, we recommend testing a swatch first.Test color by dipping a paper towel into the dyebath. If color is too light, add more dye. If color is too dark, add more water. Many Uses: For 100 years, customers have relied on Rit to rejuvenate old garments, change the color of their clothing and accessories, coordinate home decor, hide laundry accidents and more Quantity: One bottle will dye one pound of dry polyester fabric. If dyeing acetate, acrylic or nylon, one bottle will dye two pounds of dry fabric

When desired color is achieved, remove from dye bath. Fabric will look darker when wet and will dry lighter. Squeeze out excess dye. Another factor is the application method. Many dyes come in a liquid or powder form that you dilute with water, but there are also sprays and brush-on formulas, as well. Some dyes can even be used in the washing machine—you simply run a hot-water cycle to dye your clothing. How We Selected When selecting fabric dye, the most important consideration is the fabric you’re dyeing. Most fabric dyes are designed to work on either natural or synthetic fibers. Natural fibers include cotton, linen, silk, and wool, while synthetic fibers include polyester, nylon, and acrylic. There are also special fabric dyes for leather and suede. If you try to use dye that isn't specifically formulated for the material you’re using, the dye may not adhere properly, resulting in splotches or uneven color. When desired color is achieved, remove from dyebath. Fabric will look darker when wet and will dry lighter. Squeeze out excess dye. Set water temperature to the hottest possible setting and a wash cycle of at least 30 minutes or longer. The longer the item is in the dye, the darker the color will be.
