Application: How to dye in the washing machine
Place clean fabric loosely in the washing machine or top loader.
Cut open the top of the sachet and place it on the textiles in the drum.
Where appropriate, add fixative to the softener compartment.
Start a 60°C easy-care cycle without pre-wash and select the extra rinse button, if available.
For silk, add 750 ml of vinegar through the detergent compartment.
After dyeing, remove the sachet from the drum and rewash the dyed textiles in the machine on a delicate cycle at maximum 40°C.
These fabrics can be dyed
simplicol Textile Dye expert is suitable for all textiles made from wool* and silk, as well as cotton, viscose, linen, and mixed fabrics. (*except for cashmere, mohair, and angora)
Mixed fabrics are textiles made from the above-mentioned natural fibres with a maximum of 50% polyester, polyamide, and polyacrylic content.
Textile quantity and colour depth
- One packet of Textile Dye expert dyes approximately 300 g of fabric to the full shade (weigh dry fabric on kitchen scales if necessary).
- This is equivalent to 1 skirt, 2 T-shirts, or 2 hand towels.
- More laundry and mixed fabrics will result in a lighter tone.
- The colour shown on the packaging is only produced if dyeing white textiles. Coloured fabric creates mixed shades.
- For each dyeing process
- use a maximum of three packets of Textile Dye expert
- and dye to no more than 1,200 g (dry weight) of laundry at any one time.
Clothing dyed with the simplicol textile dye expert can fade
somewhat and should be washed with similar colours at max. 40°C.
Colour Fixative expert improves colour brilliance and makes it colourfast to 40°C.
- The fabric must be clean and stain-free. Before dying, wash out any fabric softeners, finishes, and agents used to disinfect the laundry.
- Patterns often remain visible after dyeing. Polyester stitching and zips do not absorb the colour.
- Stains, faded spots, or bleach marks are sometimes not completely concealed by the dye
- Pure synthetics such as polyester, polyamide, and acrylic, as well as textiles with special finishes cannot be dyed.
- In the unlikely event that residual dye remains on the machine and plastic components, you can wipe it off with a 5% to 10% solution of standard chlorine bleach.
