Not all synthetic fibres are created equal. Results will vary depending on type of fabric. Polyester is hard to dye and requires very high water temperature to achieve good colour. Therefore we only recommend dyeing polyester with the stovetop method. Note: utensils and pot for dyeing should not be used for food.
Note: Instructions below are for achieving the most vibrant colour. For lighter shades, dissolve dye packet in small container with hot water. Add dissolved dye to the dye bath in the appropriate amount to achieve desired shade. Keep in mind that colour will deepen the longer the fabric is in the dye bath.
STOVE TOP METHOD FOR 100% POLYESTER AND NYLON:
1. Fill a stainless steel or enamel pot with just enough water for the fabric to move freely. Turn heat on high.
2. Add the iDye Poly soluble dye packet and iDye Colour Intensifier to water and stir until dissolved.
3. Add pre-wetted garments or fabric and bring to a rolling boil. Maintain temperature and stir frequently for _ to 1 hour. For uniform colour use constant agitation.
4. Wash the garment with a mild detergent and dry.
STOVE TOP METHOD FOR POLYESTER AND NYLON BLENDS WITH NATURAL FIBERS:

3. Add iDye Poly, iDye Colour Intensifier, and iDye to the water and stir until dissolved.
