Thinking of breathing new life into an old tee, vintage dress or plain set of curtains? Our versatile dyes pack a colorful punch and are ready to deliver a custom touch to garments new and old, household items, and more. Here’s everything you need to know to confidently embark on your dyeing adventures.
If your fabric is white already, you are good to go!
If your fabric has an existing color, remove it with Rit Color Remover. You’ll end up with a dye-ready blank canvas for spectacular results and true color.
*Rit Color Remover only works on fabrics with less than 40% polyester, acrylic or acetate. If you are dyeing something synthetic, learn more about overdyeing here.
Step 2: Pick the Right Dye Type
One of the most important steps when dyeing is to check the care tag for the fiber content of the fabric you plan to dye.
If the fabric is a natural fabric (such as cotton, linen silk, ramie or wool), then you will want to use Rit All-Purpose Dye.
If the fabric is synthetic (contains more than 35% polyester, acrylic or acetate), then you will want to use our new dye line for synthetics, Rit DyeMore.
