Brown marks after using dye
  • Hello there; I'm new to using iDyes & also to this forum, and would like some advice on the outcome of my first attempt at using the dye.

    I have a white cotton dress, which was stitched with polyester thread, and which I wanted to dye red. I bought a red iDye & a red iDye Poly. Following the instructions, I used the stove top method to dye the dress, stirring it frequently. The colour took very well; however, as I was hanging it out to dry, I noticed small brown patches in some parts of the fabric. The brown will not wash out, so I can only assume that it has happened during the dye process. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Has anyone any suggestions as to what to do now, as the dress is pretty much ruined? Help!
