How do you wash tie dye for the first time?
Try soaking your tie dye in equal parts white vinegar and cold water for 30 minutes after you initially rinse out the dye from your garment. The vinegar helps with colorfastness. After the first couple washes, wash tie dye in cold water to prevent dye from fading. Use gentle, color-safe detergents.

All you need to do to set tie dye into your projects and prevent your projects from fading is soak the project overnight in vinegar before washing it in the machine.
How long should I let my tie dye sit?
Let the fabric sit for 2-24 hours. The longer you can let the fabric sit, the easier it will be to wash out loose dye from the fabric. The length of time you let the fabric sit is not overly critical. If you are in a hurry, let the fabric sit for as long as your deadline will allow.
Do you mix tie dye with hot or cold water?
No matter the shape or pattern, the fabric covered by rubber bands will be white or lighter-colored in the end. Once you ‘ve rubber-banded a garment, you should always wet it before applying dye. If I ‘m using cold – water dye, I wet it with cold water; if I ‘m using hot – water dye, I ‘ll use warm water.
Can you save tie-dye if you don’t use it all?
Unless you can refrigerate your dyes, I recommend that you mix only as much as you can use up within a week or two. If you are storing the dyes in an unairconditioned space during the summer, mix the dye powders with water no more than one or two days before use.
How much does it cost to fill tie-dye bottles?
The normal amount to use is one teaspoon (8g) of dye in one cup (250ml) of water. This gives us a strong and bold color in the typical style of tie – dye.
