I remember doing tie dyeing in textiles and having to make the dye out of random vegetables and flowers – very messy and not too successful if I recall. Thanks fully dying your own clothes has come on leaps and bounds since then. We were offered some fabric dyes to have a go and Chloe couldn’t resist.
Start with mixing the sachet and water.
Mixing it up!submerging and stiring.
The sachets were really easy to use and Chloe manage to only dye the T shirt she wanted! I was really pleased with the results. I think they are great for freshening up faded clothes (you can pop it all in the washing machine for ease) or for customising plainer tops.
Once you are confident you can also start mixing the packs as normal colour mixing works to, eg red and blue makes purple. There are a whole rainbow of colours to choose from aswell. The only extra ingredient you need is some salt as this helps the dye to fix to the top. The results after are permanent although it does suggest that you wash the dyed top separately for a few washes to seal the colour and stop it running.
Dylon is available from lots of retailers including Argos, supermarkets and play.
I was gifted the dyes for the purpose of the review although the thoughts and opinions are all my own.
