Fabric dyeing is the general name of the process of coloring fabric, loose fiber or yarn with fabric dyes. This process, which has been used for thousands of years, has been tried in many different ways until today.

Viktoria Fabric Dye, one of the largest fabric dyeing brands, recommends 3 different dyeing methods for fabric dyeing. These; bucket or sink method, boiling method and washing machine method.

1. The Bucket or Sink Method

The bucket or sink method starts by filling a bucket with water, or by clogging the drain of the sink and filling it with water.

If the process is to be carried out of the sink, a cover should be laid against spills in the area where the process will be performed.

First of all, the sink or bucket should be filled with water at a temperature of 60C and the powder fabric dye should be dissolved with hot water in a separate container. If the color is too light, a little more paint should be added, and if the color is dark, hot water should be added.

Pour the dissolved dye into the bucket and mix it for a while.

After the fabric to be painted is cleared of all its stains, it is wetted and placed on the dyebath. Stir the dyebath for 10 minutes continously.

Then keep the fabric in water for 30-60 minutes until the desired color has been achieved.

Use Fiske fabric dye stabilizer immediately after dyeing in accordance with its instructions.

Then rinse the dyed fabric in cold water. After this process, wash your fabric in warm water with a mild detergent, rinse and dry.

2. Boiling Method

Fill a large pot, in which the fabric can move freely, with water and place it on the stove. Heat it until it starts to boil and then add the fabric dye.

Wet your fabric and add it into the dyebath. Stir it continously for 10 minutes. Then leave the fabric in the stove for 30-60 minutes.

Rinse the dyed fabric in cold water. After this process, wash your fabric in warm water with a mild detergent, rinse and dry.

3. Washing Machine Method

Use the hottest temperature and washing duration (min. 30 minutes) that your fabric allows.

Mix the fabric dye with hot water in a plastic bowl and add 1 teaspoon of dishwashing liquid to it.

If your fabric is made of cotton or linen use salt dissolved in 4 glasses of hot water. If it is silk or nylon based you can use 1 cup of vinegard mixed 2-4 glasses of hot water instead.

Pour the fabric dye into the dispenser drawer of the washing machine. Then add salt or vinegar and start the program.
