I will stick with Rit Dye.
Morris J. Mays
I'd honestly have a hard time thinking this stuff would dye anything at this point.
Marshall Carter
The light pairs turned a dark charcoal grey and the black a nice even color.

I've been dyeing fabric, mostly shirts and pants, for years, but I'd never used Dylon before, only Rit, with mixed results.

At the risk of stating the obvious, since it seems like people are complaining about the color, I'm just going to go through the whole process of how I do this. Hope it helps, and I apologize if it sounds a little too Captain Obvious.

First of all, each packet of dye is meant to only dye about 1/2 a pound of fabric--a large t-shirt, something like that. The more items you try to dye with one packet, the weaker the color is going to be. I usually dye two adult small or medium shirts with one packet. I could probably do more, but I rarely need to, so why mess around with it?

Second, I try to use the bare minimum amount of water I can get away with. The more water you use to mix the dye, the weaker the color. When I mix the dye, here's what I do: I use a large crock pot/slow cooker and fill it about halfway with water. Turn it to high. When it heats up, I add the dye, and stir it until it's totally dissolved. Then I add the salt, let that dissolve, and finally then add the clothes. Once the clothes are in, if the water isn't mostly or totally covering them when they're soaked, I add an extra cup or three until I'm happy with the coverage. I turn the crock pot to low, and leave the clothes in there for about an hour.

Every couple of minutes, I use a pair of tongs to shift the fabric around. This last bit is really important and something that a lot of people don't do--if you don't agitate the stuff, there's a good chance you'll end up with spots that don't get dyed, and the color won't be even. The tongs part is important because this stuff will stain EVERYTHING, especially you. You do not want to get this on your hands, haha.

Color Name: Bahama Blue Verified Purchase
I used 2 packs of dye for an Ikea chair and ottoman cover that I made myself from painters drop cloth- I used it in my washing machine and it came out perfect, if you have a top-loader no worries- it did not stain my machine and no messy clean up either.
The color came out perfect no spots like you can get with hand dying. ( mixed the dye in a large soda bottle with the salt and added it to water while the machine was filling then added the covers, before the agitation cycle ( 20min.) was over I stop the machine and for the next 1.5h I let it sit and just agitated it for a minute or so every 10 min., after time was up I let the machine run a normal cycle ( no soap ))

Color Name: Velvet Black Verified Purchase
I recently purchased this dye to re-dye some of my fading black clothing. It was about 15 items of clothing ranging from small to medium, mostly shirts but did include two pants and one bed sheet. I used three packets (the packets are the size of your palm), it got my clothes a shade darker. Looking back on it now, I should have used more, about 5-6 to get the black that I wanted. Well live and learn. So my point is that the packet says that one is enough to dye to one large shirt to full black, so if you have a few items you want to dye all at once just to be on the safe side, use more. And it works really well on full cotton clothing; those items absorbed the dye best.

The dye worked well if I used approximately twice the strength call for on the label.

Color Name: Velvet Black Verified Purchase
I used this dye to darken my fading black jeans which need to be black for work. The dye uses a blue-black base rather than brown-black base like Rit does. That means I can wash my blue jeans with my black jeans and they stay blue. Also, the black produced by this dye is much blacker than what Rit produces. And seems to be more permanent based on the number of washings i've put the jeans through since dying them.

Color Name: Jeans Blue Verified Purchase
A friend gave me a pair of jeans which had those trendy faded spots on them (including whiskering) which I didn't like. I used two packets of this dye and made them a normal, uniform color. I haven't had any issues with dye running or anything. I used a large bucket in the bathtub to dye them.

Color Name: Navy
I recieved this order very quickly from the seller, They included free shipping cupon code with next order which was nice. The dye is very hard to find except from them. The instructions reccomend one pack for one pants/shirt pair. I used for one pair of coveralls that was cotton/polyester mix. Instructions reccomend against polyester fabic but it worked fairly well with the blended fabric.

I dyed my cloth prefolds with this and was so nervous. The directions were easy to follow and the color came out great! I was pleasantly surprised to find that it didn't stain my ceramic sink.
