"Dyeing" to know? Answered
I was wondering if any one has some good ideas to help me with an annoying problem if it can be helped.
I like to on occasion get used jeans like pants est and colour them using the ready to dye from a box. I pour the contents in to a large pot, add water, add an article of clothing and simmer for an hour or more. Then I rinse it under cold water and dry.
After I wear the thing, it comes time for it to get washed, I notice a lot of colour bleeds out in to the water again. It doesn’t seem to change the intensity of the colour job but I was wondering if there’s a way of making the colour bleed less when I wash my article of clothing.
Am I missing something? Should I do a salt bath after I dye the clothing? Just that the instructions say it has every thing in the powder.
