Re: [TheCostumersManifesto] Digest Number 754 - Dye
- Re: Dylon Dye. There are two kinds. Cold and Hot. The Cold requires a
Fixative packet also. Obviously the HOT (Called Multi purpose) would not be
suitable for some fabrics since it has to simmer.
Their site is GREAT!! Once there , go to INFORMATION< then go to BROCHURE
DOWNLOAD (on top edge) and you get the instructions for various products.
The products are UK, but some products are available in N.Am. At Canadian
"Fabricland" - comparable to U.S.A. Joanne's - we can get Dylon. I also
recently saw some interesting dye products at Walmart .. but I don't think
they were Dylon.
Remember to dispose of used dye in environmentally appropriate ways. Our
university runs a disposal service campus-wide for various products that
should not be poured down the drain to pollute our water and lands. Since
we usually DON'T use the washing machine method, we bottle it up in empty
windshield washer fluid containers and they take it away to process it for
