I find outdoors is a safer area. I start with clearing a 15 radius of anything I cant afford to replace or have cleaned or reDye to its original color, or if it will involve a Vet. I wear clothing of similar or insignificant color. Being a veteran Pro, I've eliminated the goggles, gloves, respirator, knee pads and steel toe boots. What makes it easy and way less messy, I use one of those notorious 'fire bomb' outside deep-fry Turkey Fryers and a 5 gallon plastic bucket to rinse and set the color.
I bring about 4 gallons of water almost to a boil, then lower my Pants into the water, let the temp rise while I mix the Dye-Salt solution. I use a wooden hoe handle to mix and lift out the hot/wet pants - into a 5 gallon bucket with the turkey basket in it. This leaves about 3 gallons of water that I then add the solution and mix a bit. While the pants are still pretty hot and excess water dripped off, I carefully lift and lower them into the Dye mix. Then it's a matter of poking and swishing them carefully around to pick up the Dye in every part. About the time your arms give out, they should be done. Turn off the burner, let it simmer.
I add a few gallons of warm water to the 5 gallon plastic bucket (remove the turkey basket). Then lift, let them drip off excess before lowering them into the warm clean water. After lightly moving them around to lower the temperature, I use a water hose to add another gallon. Then pour out the water and submerge them in cold tap water. Hang them up to dry. Wash them with other jeans, then into the dryer.
works for me....... and no animals were harmed during the process. And a new matching hoe handle bonus.
(sorry if any sarcasm may have offended you, but it was directed toward those unfortunately stuck on Easter Egg dyeing)
For these 5 items (not counting the socks), I filled a small basin (the kind you get at the hospital -- mine was pink..I'd say it fits maybe a gallon of water or less) and followed the instructions on the package. All clothing items were prewashed and rinsed in hot water prior to adding to the dye bath. I stirred and soaked the items for about an hour and rinsed as directed.
The color is nice, but everything I washed turned out a slightly different color. My two shirts (Old Navy perfect T's) were 60/40 cotton/poly, but my husband's shirt was 100% cotton and his turned out only maybe one shade darker than mine. The toddler shirt, also 60/40 poly cotton ended up with a sort of tie dye pattern on it, but it still looks cute.
All in all, the product did dye clothes green, and maybe if I had left the items in overnight or longer they would have turned dark green. The true color for all items is a shade of gray-bluish sage green. After 4 or 5 washings, my previously white T's have changed from a dark sage green to a light sage green. Good thing I like sage green.
I read the other unfavorable reviews. Dying isn't an exact science, it's more an interpretative art form. Try testing the fabric with a scrap of fabric of similar material. Denim is going to react differently than silk. It's not really the powder dye's fault but an inability to improvise.
The other thing to mention is that this brown has a bit of a purple hue. Or at least, the first clothes in the water absorb all the non-purple colors and the last ones end up purplish.
My application isn't super sensitive to hue so I'm ok, but I was expecting a bit better.
