Using Dyrect Hot Water Dyes

This is a wonderful dye range of 14 intermixable colours for all cellulose or vegetable fibres, which also includes viscose and rayon, which are vegetable based. They are simple to use, just requiring the addition of salt then heat to fix the colour.

Just measure the chosen dye and salt, following the instruction sheet, place in a dye bath, heat and enter the wetted fibre/fabric, stir and dye for required time. These can also be used in the microwave, for dyeing small quantities.

Use the plastic/glass container kept specially for dyeing and a microwave roast bag (these dyes don't dye the bag so easily), add the wetted fibre and a small amount of water, add the dye and salt, close the bag. Squeeze the contents to mix together and microwave for 6 minutes.

I prefer two lots of 3 minutes, stirring contents in between goes. The dyes can used in many other ways as described in the instruction leaflet which you'll receive with your first order.
