Dylon Fabric Dye for Machine Wash 350g




You don t need to stop at your wardrobe with the fabric dying. Why not give your home a facelift by changing the colour of your curtains, cushion covers, bedlinen, towels and many more. The list is endless and they can all be dyed to look new again in a flash on a 40 degree wash. *Requires salt which is sold separately – 500g of salt per machine wash (1 bag of dylon salt) The shade you achieve will depend on 3 things:


  • Cotton- linen – viscose will dye to full shade
  • Polyester-cotton – polyester-viscose mixes will dye to lighter shade
  • Wool- silk- polyester- acrylic- nylon – fabric with special finishes e.g. ‘dry clean only’- cannot be dyed


  •  One pack will dye up to 600g of fabric (e.g. jeans- bath towel- double sheet) to the full shade – up to 1.2kg of fabric (e.g. double duvet) to lighter shade
  • Multiple packs will dye larger amounts to full shade- e.g. 2 packs for 1200g (e.g. double duvet) or 4 packs for 2kg (e.g. curtains)


  • You can change one strong colour to another (or dye it to a lighter shade) by using DYLON PRE-DYE which lightens before you dye- ready for colour change.
  • Otherwise colour mixing rules apply- e.g. blue dye on red fabric gives purple
  • Patterned fabric will often still show through


• Weigh dry fabric to ensure you have sufficient dye

• Wash thoroughly, even if new, to remove stains or any dressings that can not be seen

• Wearing rubber gloves, empty full contents of pack(s) into drum (not the soap dispenser)

• Add 500g salt, covering dye powder (only 500g is required for any amount of dye)

• Put in damp unfolded fabric

• Run 40°C cotton cycle (do not use pre-wash, economy or half load cycles)

• When complete, add detergent & run 40C cotton cycle again

• Remove fabric from machine, add detergent & run empty 40C cycle to clean machine

• Dry fabric away from direct heat & sunlight

Dylons promise- This dye won’t damage your machine or affect subsequent washes


• Use in front loading automatic washing machines. Do not use in launderette machines.

• Don’t dye more than half machine’s maximum load to avoid crowding which will give patchy results

• Don’t use more than five packs of dye at once

• Dyeing may not cover stains, faded areas or bleach marks

• Should any dye be left in machine after dyeing, add cup of bleach to drum, add detergent as usual & run machine empty on 40C cycle

• After dyeing, wash separately or with similar colours for first two washes to remove any excess dye

• Polyester stitching will not dye
