1 packet is suitable for up to 250g dry weight of fabric.
cotton, linen, viscose, wool, silk. Polyester/cotton, polyester/viscose and other polyester mixes will result in lighter shades.
SIMPLE TO FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS:
Weigh dry fabric. Wash thoroughly. Leave damp
Using rubber gloves, dissolve dye in 500ml warm water
Fill bowl/stainless steel sink with approx 6 litres warm water (40oC) (NB we do not recommend a bath and dye may stain some plastic containers)
Stir in 250g (5tbsp) salt (this opens up the pores of the fabric and allows the dye to be absorbed).
Add dye & stir well
Submerge fabric unfolded in water
Stir for 15 mins, then stir regularly for 45 mins
Rinse fabric in cold water until water runs clear then wash separately in warm water.
Dry away from direct heat and sunlight
Wash separately for first few washes to remove any excess dye.
Not suitable for: 100% Polyester, Nylon and other synthetics
If the colour of the fabric you want to change is very strong we recommend using DYLON Pre-Dye which will leave you with a blank canvas to dye any colour you choose.
