Reed & Wood -- dye bath shelf-live, re-use
  • The instructions suggest that a dye bath will last for several weeks.

    Q: (1) How about a few months? A few years? What's the result if you try to use it after "too long?" (2) Does the same life apply for a more concentrated dye solution w/o the vinegar?

  • Hi,

    As with most dyes they deteriorate after time once in solution. Our instructions give an estimate of several weeks shelf life in solution. They may last longer but their life will be determined by the environmental factors such as temperature, humidity and exposure to sunlight. They should last longer without the vinegar.

    My advice would be to do a test.
