What fabrics can I dye?
Cotton, linen and viscose will dye to the full shade shown on the pack Mixtures of these with polyester will result in lighter shades Polyester, Nylon and other synthetics can not be dyed Wool and silk can be dyed with DYLON Hand Fabric Dye.
Will dye cover up bleach marks?
As bleach can harm the fabric, dyeing may not usually cover up bleach marks.
Can I dye fabric white?
It is not possible to dye a fabric white.
Can I dye denim?
Yes, Machine Fabric Dye or Wash & Dye are best for dyeing denim however you will loose the light dark contrast typically associated with denim.
What do I do if I don't know what the fabric is?
Cut a small section from an inconspicuous area e.g. the hem and send it to us and we'll let you know.
Can I dye faded items?
Yes but you should use DYLON Pre-Dye first to remove the colour from the fabric and insure that you get an even colour.
Can I use dyes in the microwave?
Yes you can use DYLON Hand Fabric Dye in the microwave. Microwave dyeing can achieve some good tie-dye effects however if you are looking for an even finish we would not recommend using the microwave.
Why do I need to use salt?
You need to use salt with all DYLON dyes except Wash & Dye (it's already in Wash & Dye) because it opens up the pores of the fabric and allows the dye to be absorbed.
Will dyeing affect subsequent washes in my machine?
No, just make sure that you follow the pack instructions.
Will dyeing stain my machine?
No, just make sure that you follow the pack instructions.
