Tips and Tricks

  • Always wash textiles dyed with Easy Color separately by hand at max. 30° C with a mild detergent that is gentle on the colour. Frequent washing leads to a decrease in colour intensity. Fixing agent improves the washability, but does not guarantee absolute wash fastness.

How it is done:

  • Before dyeing, the shirt should first be washed without fabric softener to remove the finish. Allow the shirt to dry. Then crumple up the shirt.
  • Tie tightly with the string.
  • Then pour boiling water into the large bowl and add Easy Color and some salt. The quantity ratio should be observed: For an intensive colouring, use about 3-5 litres of water for 150 g of fabric. You should also add 1 tablespoon of salt per 1 litre of water. The tied-up shirt is first slightly moistened and then placed in the dye bath. The fabric should remain in the dye bath for at least 20 minutes and be moved constantly.
  • After 20 minutes, remove the shirt from the dye bath and rinse under running water until the water remains clear. Then remove the yarn and let it dry.
