Trying to dye blue with idye poly...but it looks purple, any suggestions?
  • does anyone know how to achieve a real blue with i dye ploly? MY attempts all look purple?
  • Use much hotter water! You should be using iDye Poly on the stovetop.

    I've seen iDye Poly Blue produce purple hues at low heat, but bluer hues with boiling. Boil for half an hour or longer.

    If you are dyeing polyester, the enclosed color intensifier chemical will help, but you don't need to use it for other synthetic fibers.
