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. It comes off of other surfaces alright, it didn't stain the slow cooker, the bathtub, or even the floor (...I'm a little accident-prone, okay?!) but the bit of it I managed to get on my skin is definitely not going anywhere for a while.
After enough time has passed and I like the color, I use the tongs to take the clothes out, put 'em in the bathtub, and run cold water over them until it runs clear. Then I put them through the washing machine once or twice, and you're good to go.
Third, I try to stick with fabrics that I know will take the dye well. Plain white cotton shirts are the best, but lighter colors and natural fibers in general are a better choice. I mean, if you try to dye a black polyester jacket or something, it's just not going to absorb. And even on otherwise forgiving fabric, there can still be spots--a lot of shirts, the stitching on the collar and sleeves will still stay the original color. So you have to have reasonable expectations for any kind of fabric dyeing project.
Okay, with all that said, I really love this dye and definitely plan to use it more. This time around, I tried the turquoise/Bahama blue, and it's gorgeous--absolutely the color I wanted. Two adult medium t-shirts in one packet of this dye and it's exactly the color on the package.
I love this product is safe to use on fabrics that will be used around my kids and dogs so this is my go to dye for all my projects! It is very easy to use and the directions are clear.
Here are my tips:
- Buy enough dye for your project or you won’t reach an adequate saturation level— it’s probably one more pack than you think.
- Wash your item/s first to remove any oils or anything else that could interfere with the dye penetrating the fabric evenly.
- Sit with your project like you’re babysitting. If you walk away, expect disaster.
- Stir, stir, stir.
- Don’t add more water than you have to (unless you’ve bought more dye packets).
- For rinsing, I start at one end of the piece that I’m working on and hold it under the water until it runs almost clear and then ring it out. Move on in the same fashion and you won’t spend hours rinsing.
*The reason for my 4’star review is because I purchased velvet black and straight from the packet it had a blue hue to the dye. If you want a deep deep true black with this, go overboard on the number of packets you use. I purchased two for 1/2lb of fabric and ended up with a navy/black color. It’s pretty but I would have bought an extra pack to get rid of the blue tint. I think some of the other colors are easier to work with too (bahama blue for example).
