Protect your worktop with plastic sheeting and wear gloves.
Use washed white cotton trousers. Moisten the fabric using a spray bottle or the like.
Shake the bottle and drip dye here and there using a pipette for example.
Leave some white patches untreated in between the pink splotches and spray on more water to disperse the dye.
For a pastel effect: Leave the trousers for 1 hour, rinse and leave to dry.
For intense colour: Leave the trousers to soak up dye for at least 1 hour and then hang up to air dry.
Fix the dye by ironing on the cotton setting (without steam) for 5 min. Alternatively, fix the dye in the oven at 150 °C for 5 min, but make sure that heat-sensitive features like plastic buttons and the fabric itself are not touching the ovens 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. For a stubborn stain on a pair of trousers or a top, don't discard them, but upcycle and transform them using tie-dye! We used a bright pink dye, but you can adjust the shade just the way you want it. Dyed clothes are washable at 40 °C. Wash separately the first couple of times.
