Colored all the way through with no spots or streaks. Can’t even tell I dyed it myself at home. Used a 3 gallon bucket with super hot water and half the bottle of dye. Used it on a dress I bought for a wedding (dress was white when bought). Picture looks a little darker than in person
I got this because my dry cleaner somehow got bleach on my jean jacket (although they claim it was already like that when i dropped it off….) If you are going to spot treat denim, which is what I did, don’t dilute it. wet the denim, shake well, dip a q-tip in the bottle, and dab on the small area. let it set 20 minutes and rinse with a little mild soap. then do it again right away, if the bleached spot is still noticeable. I sort of blended the edges out, too, so there wouldn’t be an obvious line. two times did it for me. going to do the other two spots tonight. im very happy with how the first spot looks!89 people found this helpful
I used this to dye back a pillow case after loads of washes that dulled the color. It worked beautifully!!! The directions were clear and easy to follow. I was worried that pink dye would ruin all my clothes in the wash or that it would bleed consistently, but it didn’t! I dyed the case in my sink and rinsed thoroughly before I put it in the wash with the rest of my darks. No bleeding, no extra dying, it was so simple! The nice thing is, I still have plenty of dye left over to use again. Also, it is a true petal pink color. You can adjust intensity based on how much dye/dilution you use. Rit dye is a trusted brand for a reason and my family has been using it for years. I’m really happy with the result and I will continue to be a loyal customer!

I was a bit hesitant because of some of the negative reviews, but the dye worked great for my purposes. I dyed two pairs of white jeans because I could buy them cheaper and more easily than finding the color I wanted. I followed the directions on the RIT website, following the method for doing it in a sink or bucket. I boiled water to make it hot, and also used salt, as recommended. The wine color got very close to the color on the bottle, although I did let the jeans soak in the dye for about an hour, as suggested for the darkest color. I also dyed a pair of light blue jeans; these did not get as dark, but did get a pretty shade of red/purple. Overall, it was a pretty simple process, and I would recommend just using the dye in a basin in the sink and boiling water. I did wash the jeans as soon as I was done dying them so the washer would wring them out, as it was too hard to squeeze all of the water out of the heavy jeans. Using this on white jeans definitely worked well.
First off, the instructions on the Rit website are NOT the same as on the bottle. The website says to add salt and laundry detergent and to use double the dye when attempting deep colors like navy blue.
I put five bottles of dye in 25 gallons of the hottest tap water I could get. I added half a box of morton’s kosher salt because that is what I had. I added the salt five minutes after putting the blankets in the dye bath. I did not add the detergent because I missed that detail until it was too late.
I dyed two king size cotton knit blankets. One used to be navy and was terribly faded. One was white it its glory days…pretty dingy when I decided to dye it.
I left the blankets in the dye bath for three hours. The website says you can leave the material in the dye for up to an hour SO LONG AS THE WATER STAYS HOT.
Even after three hours, the water in the tub was very warm. Probably because the tub held the heat better than a rubbermaid tub would.
I DO NOT recommend using your bath tub. Maybe put the rubbermaid tub or 5 gallon bucket IN the tub and fill the tub around it…keep the water around it hot? My tub is 60 years old and pink and I didn’t care that there was a bit of tint held by the tub because the tub is being replaced in the next year or so anyway. Most of it came off with scrubbing bubbles shower foam and a scrubby pad, but I would not use your tub unless you don’t care if it holds the color.
I wrung out the blankets and threw them in the washing machine (one at a time) on COLD. They came out GREAT. The color is very vibrant and nice. I’m attaching pictures which show you how dark the blankets came out, but in the photos, the color has a lot of gray in it. These blankets are true blue. In the photo, the left blanket was the navy (faded) one and the right blanket used to be white. I used the flash on one photo and not the other. Hopefully this will help give you an idea of what you can expect if you exceed the time and dye the bottle says you need.
I would definitely go heavy on the dye and check the Rit website before you attempt to dye something a dark color.
