"Tea" stain w/ brown dye?
  • I have a cotton bedspread that was white, but dyed with a bit of ecru to go toward an ivory. Instead, the color is a bit yellow...my question:

    Can I use a small amount of brown dye to give it a tea-stained look? Will it cancel out the pale yellow?

  • Hi,
    Is the dye blotchy or just too yellow? If it is not the correct color then over dyeing with another color may give the tea stain effect you require. If it is blotchy then I would recomend using color remover and starting again.
  • Thanks, Celia! The color is too yellow...so I'll go ahead and try some brown to make it look more of an antique ivory.
