– NOT for pure synthetics (except nylon), polyester/wool mixtures, or fabrics with special finishes.

– Multi-Purpose Dye is not colour fast so garments should always be washed separately.


5g of powder is sufficient to dye up to 250g/8 oz dry weight fabric.


You will need:

– 30g / 1oz of salt

– Rubber gloves

– A saucepan


Instructions:

1. Weigh dry fabric. Wash fabric thoroughly even if new and leave damp.

2. Fill saucepan or similar heatproof container with enough hot water to cover article and allow easy movement during dyeing.

4. Add solution to vessel with 30g/1oz salt, stirring well.

5. Put in clean, damp article and raise temperature to simmer, then stir constantly for 20 minutes to ensure even dyeing.
