DYLON 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

DIRECTIONS

• Weigh dry fabric to ensure you have sufficient dye
• Wash thoroughly, even if new, to remove stains or any dressings that can not be seen
• Wearing rubber gloves, empty full contents of pack(s) into drum (not the soap dispenser)
• Put in damp unfolded fabric
• Run 40°C cotton cycle (do not use pre-wash, economy or half load cycles)
• When complete, add detergent & run 40°C cotton cycle again
• Remove fabric from machine, add detergent & run empty 40°C cycle to clean machine
• Dry fabric away from direct heat & sunlight

Our promise: This dye won’t damage your machine or affect subsequent washes
HELPFUL HINTS

• 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.
