How to instructions

  • 1

    Cover your worktop with plastic sheeting and wear gloves.

  • 2

    Launder the garment first.

  • 3

    Ensure fabric is damp.

  • 4

    Use cotton string to tie knots on garment front and back. The harder the knots, the greater the contrast pattern.

  • 5

    Dab dye on the garment. Squeeze the knots to help the dye absorb thoroughly.

  • 6

    Give the dye an hour to soak in before snipping off the strings. Leave to dry.

  • 7

    Fix the dye by ironing on the cotton setting (without steam) for 5 min. or by heating in the oven at 150 °C for 5 min. Check that the fabric is not touching the oven-s heating elements.

Give old clothes a new lease of life using fabric dye and the art of dye-resist! This runny fabric dye is suitable for use on white and pale-coloured cotton garments. The dye has a great watercolour quality, making it perfect for recolouring clothes using tie-dye. Tie-dye is a type of resist-dyeing in which you knot, fold, twist or tie fabric before dyeing it. For a stubborn stain on a pair of shorts or top, don't discard them, but upcycle and transform them using tie-dye! Remember to protect your work surface and your clothes before starting. Tie-dyed clothes are washable at 40 °C. Wash separately the first couple of times.
