From all colours bright & beautiful to rich & intense shades, with Dylon Fabric Dyes for machine use you have all the colours of the rainbow to choose from. These dyes are simply bursting with a whole spectrum of colourful possibilities, so if you feel like a change, you can wake up your wardrobe, revive a faded top or brighten some cushion covers, with colour & ease.

What fabrics can I dye?

Cotton, linen and viscose will dye to the full shade shown on the pack Mixtures of these with polyester will result in lighter shades Polyester, Nylon and other synthetics can not be dyed Wool and silk can be dyed with DYLON Hand Fabric Dye.

Will dye cover up bleach marks?

As bleach can harm the fabric, dyeing may not usually cover up bleach marks.

Can I dye fabric white?

It is not possible to dye a fabric white.

Can I dye denim?

Yes, Machine Fabric Dye or Wash & Dye are best for dyeing denim however you will loose the light dark contrast typically associated with denim.

What do I do if I don't know what the fabric is?

Cut a small section from an inconspicuous area e.g. the hem and send it to us and we'll let you know.

Can I dye faded items?

Yes but you should use DYLON Pre-Dye first to remove the colour from the fabric and insure that you get an even colour.

Can I use dyes in the microwave?

Yes you can use Dylon Hand Fabric Dye in the microwave. Microwave dyeing can achieve some good tie-dye effects however if you are looking for an even finish we would not recommend using the microwave.

Why do I need to use salt?

You need to use salt with all DYLON dyes except Wash & Dye (it's already in Wash & Dye) because it opens up the pores of the fabric and allows the dye to be absorbed.

Will dyeing affect subsequent washes in my machine?

No, just make sure that you follow the pack instructions.

Will dyeing stain my machine?

No, just make sure that you follow the pack instructions.

We would always advise that you weigh the item that you want to dye to determine how many packs of dye you'll need. Below gives you a rough idea of the weight of some regular items.

  • Jeans or Trousers 600g (1 1/4lbs)
  • 2 Shirts 500g (1lb)
  • Bath Towel 600g (1 1/4lbs)
  • Double Sheet 600g (1 1/4lbs)
  • Double Duvet Cover 1200g (2 1/2lbs)
  • Curtains 2kg (4lbs)

Fabric dyes will blend with the original colour of your fabric so you'll need to consider colour mixing rules.

  • Red Blue = Purple
  • Blue Yellow = Green
  • Red Yellow = Orange

Alternatively, you can use DYLON Pre-Dye to return a fabric to a neutral shade before dyeing to obtain the colour close to that shown on the pack.

  • Weigh dry fabric to ensure you have sufficient dye
  • Wash thoroughly, even if new, to remove stains or any dressings that can not be seen
  • Wearing rubber gloves, empty full contents of pack(s) into drum (not the soap dispenser)
  • Add 500g salt, covering dye powder (only 500g is required for any amount of dye)
  • Put in damp unfolded fabric
  • Run 40°C cotton cycle (do not use pre-wash, economy or half load cycles)
  • When complete, add detergent & run 40°C cotton cycle again
  • Remove fabric from machine, add detergent & run empty 40°C cycle to clean machine
  • Dry fabric away from direct heat & sunlight

The shade you achieve will depend on 3 things:

FABRIC TYPE

  • Cotton, linen & viscose will dye to full shade
  • Polyester/cotton & polyester/viscose mixes will dye to lighter shade
  • Wool, silk, polyester, acrylic, nylon & fabric with special finishes e.g. ‘dry clean only’, cannot be dyed

FABRIC AMOUNT

  • One pack will dye up to 600g of fabric (e.g. jeans, bath towel, double sheet) to the full shade & up to 1.2kg of fabric (e.g. double duvet) to lighter shade
  • Multiple packs will dye larger amounts to full shade, e.g. 2 packs for 1200g (e.g. double duvet) or 4 packs for 2kg (e.g. curtains)

ORIGINAL FABRIC COLOUR

  • You can change one strong colour to another (or dye it to a lighter shade) by using DYLON PRE-DYE which lightens before you dye, ready for colour change.
  • Otherwise colour mixing rules apply, e.g. blue dye on red fabric gives purple
  • Patterned fabric will often still show through

HELPFUL HINTS

  • Use in front loading automatic washing machines. Do not use in launderette machines.
  • Don’t dye more than half machine’s maximum load to avoid crowding which will give patchy results
  • Don’t use more than five packs of dye at once
  • Dyeing may not cover stains, faded areas or bleach marks
  • Should any dye be left in machine after dyeing, add cup of bleach to drum, add detergent as usual & run machine empty on 40°C cycle
  • After dyeing, wash separately or with similar colours for first two washes to remove any excess dye
  • Polyester stitching will not dye
