    it's about Dyeing ..
  • Why are you posting Dylon's dye instructions for someone who's asked about Jacquard's iDye dye? iDye is not like any of Dylon's various dye products, so their instructions are not useful for people who are using iDye.

    You can use iDye in a bucket, with lots of stirring, or, for much better results, use the stovetop method given in the instructions in the dye package. iDye is a hot water dye and will not perform well if used with cooler water. The ideal temperature for iDye is a simmer (about 185 to 190°F), while the ideal temperature for iDye Poly is a full rolling boil.

    To find out how many shirts you can dye with one packet, weigh your shirts while they are still dry. Each packet is supposed to dye up to 2 to 3 pounds of fabric.

    Incidentally, Procion MX dyes give much better results on cotton and rayon, and don't require any heat, just some washing soda to set the dye.
