I am a redhead and white doesn't suit me so I buy white items and dye them. I used I-Dye in Ecru for the first time this weekend and followed the instructions TO THE LETTER. Firstly, the smallest problem is that the dye hasn't taken on 99% of items - this could be something to do with the washing machine cylinder taking a turn when I switched the On button, and rejecting some of the dye. Secondly, I now have many new items with brown spots on where the dye has spotted onto the fabric. This was a very expensive project as these clothes are not wearable.

Hi Kathryn,

So sorry to hear you've not had good results with the iDye. A couple of things I'd like to check on here - were all the fabrics 100% natural fibers - cotton, linen, rayon, etc. - and all the pieces had been pre-washed prior to dyeing? Also, what water temperature did you use?
The spots sound like they are a result of dye that did not dissolve completely - that can be solved by pre-dissolving the dye in a quart jar of hot water, however it doesn't help you with the current issue.
To remove the existing dye you can use [url="http://www.jacquardproducts.com/products/chemicals/colorremover.php"]Color Remover[/url] or [url="http://www.jacquardproducts.com/products/dyes/idye/"]iDye Color Remover[/url].
And, if you'd like to speak with a customer service rep, please call 800.442.0455
