Tie -Dye Washing Tips

The dye needs time to bond with the fabric. You will take your DiYs home to rinse & wash.
  • For best color, let sit for 24 hours, 12 hour minimum

  • Start with COLD water, still tied rinse thoroughly 

  • Untie under running water. Use warm/hot water to loosen any sinew string. Be very careful if you use scissors! 

  • Wash in HOT with a small squirt of the blue Original Dawn Dish Soap (avoid regular laundry detergent for the first wash, they often contain Soda Ash, which will lead to back-staining) 

  • Multiple items can be washed together. I let mine soak in HOT water until they are all ready to wash. Hot water will help release excess dye.

  • If you do not want to use Hot water to wash, be aware that the dye will bleed for a while.

  • The dye process will diminish the softness of items. Time and wear or a good fabric softener will fix that.
