Product Description

Product Description

Change or renew the colour of your clothes and soft furnishings with this easy to use machine fabric dye, that won't wash out. For use in automatic front loading machines only. Suitable fabrics: cotton, linen, viscose and polyester/cotton mixes. Lighter shades on polyester mixes because pure synthetics do not pick up the dye. Not suitable for wool, silk, polyester, acrylic, nylon and other synthetic fibres or fabric with special finishes e.g. 'dry clean' only. One pack will dye up to 600g /1lb dry weight fabric. Dyeing larger amounts (up to 1200g) will give a lighter colour. Final colour depends on the original fabric colour e.g. sunflower dye on red fabric will give orange.

Box Contains

1 x 200g machine fabric dye

Top Customer Reviews

I worked in an art and craft supplies shop for ten years and often had to explain to customers how to dye clothes using this and similar products. After trying it out myself for the first time recently, I found it works just as well as I thought it did.

There are several potential pitfalls. Reading the manual is the key, but it doesn't cover all eventualities or might not be too obvious on some points. Some additional information and contenders for errors that I encountered through my ten years of selling this product are as follows:

1) Using salt substitute instead of the real thing. Yes, this might seem obvious to most, but not to all. What is needed is pure cooking salt (100% NaCl - Sodium Chloride). Finely ground dissolves better in water than coarse, but under no circumstance use any low-sodium salt substitute or anything that has been augmented with things like iodine - those things are fit for human consumption, but will make your dyeing come out all wrong.

2) Even if what you dye is brand new - in fact, it is even more important if it is new - wash it properly first. New clothes in the shop are frequently inserted with agents to keep them looking nice and neat in the shop, sometimes with light water repellents, and it is essential that these things be washed out before attempting to dye. If the clothes are brand new, I'd even recommend doing it twice just to be sure.

3) Any fabrics that are waxed, waterproofed or fireproofed will not dye properly unless all of those active substances are washed out completely (see point 2). If you're unsure if there is any treatment left in the garment, at least for waterproofing, let a drop of water drip on it. If it immediately soaks in, you're good to dye.

Managed to dye 2 shirts with this pack - very successfully. It even covered some old bleach marks on one shirt. Please note that you need to buy some salt to use with the dye

Dylon Machine Dye - Dark BrownUsed this to dye pair of curtains from cream to brown, was a bit worried about putting it in the washing machine, but there was no need to worry, my curtains were great, not quite as dark as i had hoped, but the washing machine was spotless afterwards, the dye is very easy to use and i would definatly recommend it, very pleased.

I have 2 pairs of brown denims that had lost their darkness. I bought this dye, followed the instructions exactly(I even weighed the jeans and the salt!!) And the results were better than ever. The jeans are perfect and dyed beautifully. Remember you need salt to use the dye, wash the jeans first, then put the dye and salt in the drum, then add the wet jeans and wash all on 40 .!

Only two pairs of trousers dyed, one brown and one khaki.
Brown trouser dyed OK but corduroy pair did not become deep brown but a curious but not unpleasant khaki brown.
However easy to use.

This was purchased to dye some patterned material (poly-cotton) for a stable backdrop for a Scratch Nativity event. Good coverage with a little see through of the pattern, but this was only to be expected because of the make-up of the cloth and the dark pattern. I think this is a really good product, and was surprised and pleased that it coped so well with the poly-cotton.

I buy these dyes frequently and am never disappointed. They work excellently on cottons and linens and in paler tones on polycottons, where the depth of colour will depend on the ratio of cotton to 'poly'. They are also kind to the washing machine though I do a final empty wash with some bleach in it just to make sure there is no colour lurking in the corners. I would happily recommend this product, especially the stronger, darker colours which cover extremely well..

excellent stuff and curtains went from a peachy colour to brown . Lighter than I wanted but my curtains are very long , heavy ones so I would recommend using 2 boxes if you want dark colours but easy to use and did not ruin my washing machine
