Protect work surface with plastic surface cover. Cover with a layer of paper towels. Prewash fabric to remove sizing; do not use fabric softener. Choose desired technique. If using wet technique, use directly from washer. If using dry technique, first dry fabric in dryer. Wearing plastic gloves from kit, add water to dye bottle(s), filling to line. Replace cap tightly. Shake until dye is dissolved. Use full-strength for intense colors. For a lighter shade of color, add more water using extra bottle if needed. Apply dye on fabric, checking to make sure dye has penetrated into folds. Do not over-saturate fabric. If dye is applied too close together, the colors may become muddy. Cover dyed fabric with plastic wrap to keep damp. Let set for 6-8 hours or longer for most intense colors. Fully rinse dyed fabric in warm water until all extra dye is removed and water runs clear - removing rubber bands if used. Fill washer to large load setting with hottest water suitable for the fabric and a small amount of laundry soap. Wash and dry separately. Wash separately for the first few washes. Do not allow dyed fabric to rest wet on other items.
Most intense on natural fibers such as 100% cotton, rayon and silk. Safe and easy to use. Adult supervision advised for children under 14. Note: Do not add water to dye until you are prepared to apply it. Apply dye within 72 hours after mixing. Dye left unapplied after 72 hours may begin to lose concentration and may result in noticeably weaker color intensity. Make sure excess dye dust is removed from work area. It is invisible until it reacts with water. Create new colors by blending dyes.
