DYLON All-In-One Machine Dye Instructions
The shade you achieve will depend on 3 things:
1. 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
2. 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).
3. 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.
- First, weigh dry fabric to ensure you have sufficient dye. Once you are ready:
- Put damp fabric into the drum.
- Just peel off lid, put the Pod directly into the drum of the washing machine and run 40C or 30C cycle.
- Run another 40C or 30C cycle with detergent.
- Dry fabric away from direct heat & sunlight
- 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 You do not need to add salt with the new DYLON 350g packs of Machine Dye.
- 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. Always read the full instructions in pack before use.
