Tips & Tricks:

  • Wear the gloves that come in the kit, as the dye will stain you hands.
  • It is a good idea to wear an apron to protect your clothing from spills.
  • You can dye printed clothing and have great results.
  • One bottle of dye can dye several items.
  • Combine small amounts of left over dye to create a new color.
  • Most thread is polyester and will remain the color it started out as; this will give you nice unexpected results.
  • Be sure to reuse, repurpose and recycle.
