- Instruction booklet
- Protect work surface with a plastic tablecloth. Cover with a layer of paper towels.
- Prewash fabric to remove sizing. Do not use fabric softener or dryer sheet.
- Choose desired technique. If using wet technique, use directly from washer. If using dry technique, first dry fabric in dryer.
- Wearing rubber gloves, add water to dye bottle, filling to line. Replace cap tightly. Shake until dye is dissolved. Use full-strength for intense colours. For a lighter shade of colour, add more water using extra bottle if needed.
- Apply dye on fabric, checking to make sure dye has penetrated into creases and folds. Do not over-saturate fabric. If dye colours are applied too close together, the colours may become muddy. Check backside of fabric item to make sure dye has penetrated to backside. If not, carefully flip fabric item over and add dye.
- Cover dyed fabric with plastic wrap to keep damp (or put in a plastic bag). Let set 6-8 hours or longer for most intense colours. Fully rinse dyed fabric in warm water until all extra dye is removed and water runs clear - removing rubber bands if used.
- Fill washer to large load setting with hottest water suitable for the fabric and a small amount of laundry soap. Wash and dry separately.
- Wash separately the first few washes. Do not allow dyed fabric to rest wet on other items.
- Do not add water to dye until you are prepared to apply it. Apply dye within 24 hours after mixing. Dye left unapplied after 24 hours will begin to lose concentration and will result in noticeably weaker color intensity.
- Cover work surface with disposable plastic tablecloth to prevent dye from staining work surface.
- Make sure excess dye dust is removed from work area, as it is invisible until it reacts with water.
- Create new colors by blending dyes.
- Cover dyed fabric with plastic to keep it from drying out; fabric that dries before dye is finished setting can result in weaker color concentration and less intensity.
- Precautionary note: Always wear gloves when working with dyes. Dry dye powder can cause an allergic reaction in some people.
- Supervise children making tie-dye projects.
