From the brand


How much fabric can I dye with one pack of DYLON Machine Dye?

One pack will dye up to 600g of fabric to the full shade (up to 1.8kg of fabric to lighter shades).

Use multiple packs to dye larger amounts of fabric.

Always use the whole pack(s) in one go.

You can use up to 5 packs in one wash.

How does the original colour of the fabric affect the end result?

Colour mixing rules apply, e.g. blue dye on a red fabric will result in purple.

Patterns on the fabric may also still be visible after dyeing.

Stains, faded areas or bleach marks may not always covered by the dye.

Do I have to add additional salt or a fixative?

When dyeing, don’t use additional salt or fix, as the dye already includes these.

Why is it more sustainable to dye faded jeans than buying a new pair?

The dyeing process with DYLON consumes 60 litres of water. The production of a single pair of new jeans consumes about 8000 litres of water.

How long does the fabric dye last? Will it fade?

You can treat dyed fabrics just like new fabrics. The shade will last longer if you use a colour care detergent instead of an all-purpose detergent.

Will fabrics dyed with DYLON fabric dye run onto other fabrics in subsequent washes?

Dyed fabric is the same as a new item in terms of colour. It should be washed with similar-coloured textiles to minimize the risk of colour runs. Red fabrics for example should not be washed with white fabrics.

Is it possible to dye dark colours to a lighter shade?

Yes sometimes, but you would need to use DYLON Pre-Dye first to remove the original colour.

Is it possible to dye faded fabrics after they’ve been through many wash cycles?

Yes it’s fine to dye well washed fabrics and the colour mixing rules still apply.

Will stains or bleach marks be covered?

The best results will be achieved on stain free, clean fabrics. Stains are not always covered when dyeing and may still be visible.

Is it possible to do a white wash after I have dyed something in my machine?

Yes, but the machine has to be cleaned with a separate wash cycle (ideally 40°C). This is necessary in order to remove the risk of any traces of dye being left in the machine.

Is it possible to use DYLON fabric dye by hand?

Yes, but only by using Dylon hand dye. Machine dye and wash and dye are therefore not suitable for dyeing by hand.

What should I do if I dyed with DYLON and some marks or stains appear in the subsequent washes?

It is important to clean the washing machine after dyeing as per the instructions in order to prevent any issues with subsequent washes.

Is it possible to dry dyed fabrics in the dryer?

Yes, after the first wash after dyeing you can put your dyed fabrics in the dryer. You can treat your DYLON dyed fabrics like any other coloured fabrics.

Is it possible to use DYLON fabric dye in a top loader?

No, DYLON fabric dyes are not suitable to be used in a top loader machine.

Will DYLON harm my washing machine?

DYLON will not harm your washing machine. Due to the fact that DYLON is a dye, slight staining of rubber parts e.g. seals is possible. The staining will not affect following washing loads. You are advised to follow the instructions in the pack and to clean the machine with a separate empty wash cycle (40°) after dyeing. Traces of dye on the rubber seal can be removed by wiping with a small amount of bleach.

Do I have to consider anything when dyeing patterned fabrics?

The patterns are very likely to remain after dyeing.

Shop the Dylon Range

Perfectly suited for smaller items like shorts, vests or socks, and for delicates, you’d rather not put in the washing machine, like wool and silk.
One sachet is enough to dye 250g of fabric to the full shade or up to 500g of fabric to lighter shades (250g of salt required). Use multiple packs to dye larger quantities.
Suitable for: Wool, silk, cotton, linen & viscose. Mixed fabrics will achieve a lighter shade of colours and synthetic fabrics like polyester and nylon won’t dye.
This colour is also available as Machine Dye. Use with Pre-Dye if you want to change from one strong colour to another or if you want to achieve a lighter colour.
