Mixed Dye
  • Hi all! I as wondering if anyone knew how long the dye can sit in the bottles already mixed before it can't be used anymore. I dyed a bunch of stuff this afternoon and have a lot of dye left over. I have plenty more to tie dye but don't have time to use up the rest of the already mixed dye today. Any idea how many days the dye can sit in the bottles and still be used at a later time/how it should be stored? Thanks! :)
  • Hi Becca,

    Presuming this is Procion MX dye you are talking about it will be safe to store it for about 5- 10 days before you risk pale shades from the dye. It is best to store it in a cool/cold dark environment as heat will speed the reaction of the dye.

    hope this helps
