Step 1:

First of all boil the jug... once its boiled pour into the container and add a tablespoon or so of dye , or just so the water is dark.

Now put the hoses in to the water make sure they are covered and are full of the dye(no air in them)

Leave in the water till it has cooled, giving sufficient time for the dye to soak in .

*****I know my hoses are purple but ive dyed them already, im  just using them for demonstrative purposes *****

Step 2:

Now, when removing the hoses from the dye make sure you do it in a place where nothing will get stained.

You should now have nicely dyed hoses to add further blinganation to your ride.

Thanks for reading...
