Jacqard iDye Instructions

Easy to use soluble dye packet. For all natural fabrics, polyester and nylon. Dyes 2 to 3 pounds of fabric. (1-1.3 kg.)

Which Dye?

  • for 100% natural fabrics (cotton, silk, rayon, wool, linen) use iDye
  • for 100% polyester & nylon use iDye Poly
  • for polyester blends use iDye and the corresponding color of iDye Poly (see below)

For best results:

  • Prewash garment to remove any sizings, softeners or finishes.
  • Use the stove top method for dark colors (black, brown or olive) or very intense colors (bright yellow, reds).
  • Use constant agitation for uniform color.

Note: utensils and pot for dyeing should not be used for food.

Top load washing machine method:

  1. Fill washing machine with just enough water for the fabric to move freely.
  2. Add the iDye soluble dye. Agitate for 30 seconds to dissolve packet.
  3. Add one cup (237 ml.) of salt for cotton, linen and rayon. Add 1/3 cup (78 ml.) of white vinegar for silk and wool.
  4. Add pre-wetted fabric.
  5. Extend the dyeing time by resetting the wash cycle before the rinse cycle begins. The longer the dyeing time, the darker the color and better the fixation.
  6. Wash the garment with a mild detergent and dry.

Front load washing machine method:

Follow top load method, except add everything to beginning of cycle.

*For Polyester BLENDS:

  1. Choose an iDye Poly color closest to the iDye color you are dyeing and add both packets included in i-Dye Poly & iDye for Natural Fibers to dye bath.
  2. Follow stove top method outlined below. Allow dye mixture to come to a simmer for 1/2 to 1 hour.

Stove top method required for Polyester & Polyester Blends:

  1. Fill a stainless steel or enamel pot with just enough hot water for the fabric to move freely. Turn on medium to high heat.
  2. Add the iDye soluble dye packet to water and stir.
  3. Add pre-wet garments and raise temperature to a simmer.
  4. Add one cup (237 ml.) of salt for polyblends with cotton, linen and rayon. Avoid pouring directly onto fabric.
  5. Maintain temperature and stir frequently for 1/2 hour.
  6. Wash the garment with a mild detergent and dry.
