I just dyed in my washer and the fabric came out with uneven color. What caused this?
February 13 2018
This is generally caused by: (a) a combination of too much fabric and too little water in the washing machine or (b) the fabric got twisted during the dyeing cycle. When dyeing in a top loader machine, check your fabric frequently. If it gets twisted, stop the machine and untwist it.
If you are working with cotton, linen, silk, wool or ramie and don’t like the color, you can remove it using Rit Color Remover. It will bring the fabric to a white or cream color. Then you can re-dye the garment to another color!
