Put 1/2 cup salt in 8 cups of water. Put your fabric in here and boil for one hour. If you’re using plants to dye your fabric, you have to use a vinegar fixative. Combine one part vinegar and four parts water, and boil the fabric in the mixture for one hour.
How do you darken faded black clothes?
Here’s how it’s done:
- Make two or three cups of black coffee.

Why did my Rit dye not work?
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.

There are no right and wrong answers here. Leave your fabric in the dye for as little or as long as you like. The finished color will be slightly lighter than it looks like when wet. I recommend leaving it in for at least ONE hour, or longer.
Can I tie dye a colored shirt?
It’s absolutely possible to dye a colored piece of fabric. The way that dyes work, any color you put on colored fabric will simply combine and the result will be a mix of the two colors. This is a known tie-dye technique called redyeing. Let’s say that you have a blue shirt, for example.
Can you dye GREY clothes?
If everything is in order, you can dye any grey clothing as long as the colours you need are darker than just what you started with. To make the dye colour turn up, it just needs to be a little darker. However, because that hue will be mixed with grey, it will change the dye’s final colour.
