Color too dark
  • Help - I dyed 8mm silk chiffon with golden yellow - Jacquard Acid dye - dyed beautifully but too dark - how can I lighten these costumes. I did try to wash them but didn't really help.
    Thank you! I need these for costumes for next week (2/19)
  • Your best option will be to use Color Remover. You can immerse the pieces in a bath of the Color Remover until it looks a couple of shades darker than what you are looking for. You'll want to keep a close watch on the pieces in the bath and make sure they are moved around alot to keep the removal even. One thing to keep in mind - some dyes remove very quickly, others very slowly and in some cases the color will shift to a different tone. You may want to try a sample piece if you have one available.
