    Good for gray |
    Verified Purchase

    I used it to dye some cushion covers, I wanted them to become gray so it was fine. But if you need to dye some stuff into black, well I think it won't be easy.

    this is not black ... my sweater ,eventually, became dark blue-gray color. Everything was done strictly on prescription. However, as mentioned in other Review, is the truth: this dye is not black.

    I picked this up when the rit navy blue didn't do the job. This did the job well as I only used about half the bottle to turn the now purple jeans into something darker. This did the job and saved a pair of jeans.

    Hard to get real black |
    HEBER CITY, UT, USVerified Purchase

    If you are looking to dye a really light material black, it is going to be tough. I have experimented with a few black dyes and none of them work great with light fabrics. If you are redying something black, this will work great! I knew this going in so I still give it 4 stars because dark black is nearly impossible to get with DIY at home dyes. Most colors are a dark grey when finished.

    This is a great price, but the black wasn't quite dark enough for dying a white sweater. It gave my white sweater a greyish-purple hue, so I ended up ordering another brand of fabric dye from Amazon (comparably priced) that did the trick beautifully!!

    Excellent dye and easy to use, use the tub, not the washing machine, though... |
    Verified Purchase

    I received this the other day and this AM, I dyed three pair of denim pants (jeans) in the laundry tub. Hot water and wet pants were put together in the tub, mixed constantly for an hour, then drained, drip dry, then in the washer for a quick cold water rinse and they turned out really nice! Nicer than I expected them to, which is always a good thing! Whenever I read about people having issues with the dye process, they were always using the washing machine method, so I opted for the laundry tub and it was easy!!

    Very unimpressed |
    Verified Purchase

    I figured that after white fabric, yellow must be an easy color to cover up with black dye. I followed the instructions on the RIT website to the t and additionally I more than doubled the amount of dye they recommend using. My yellow fabric is now a lovely military olive green. That doesn't really work for a black and white color scheme. The dye will dye your skin better than it will fabric. I shouldn't have wasted my money on dye and just went straight to buying black fabric.

    This dye is Rit dye. If you have used it before you know it works really well if you just follow the instructions. It is easy to clean up with rubbing alcohol and has no fumes or smell. It's easy to use and I would recommend. Of course only dye recommended fabrics.

    I have been re-blacking my clothes for years and this dye is my favorite by far. I buy 10 bottles or so at a time on Amazon bc no one else carries multiple bottles consistently locally.

    Great for reviving black jeans! |
    Verified Purchase

    I have a really great fitting pair of black jeans that I wear about 3x per week. After 6 months of owning them, they've certainly taken a beating by being washed constantly and the black was finally too faded for me, so I decided this would be the first time I've ever dyed my clothes since I love my jeans so much! There are a lot of negative comments about this product, so I was hesitant to order. However, upon going to Rit's website, they give a ton of good information on how to properly dye your clothing! The method they recommend for black and other dark colors is the Stovetop method, which I used - just make sure you follow every step (ie. wet your article to be dyed before you submerge it, continuously agitate article for 30 minutes while simmering)! You can go their website and it is listed under "Dyeing Techniques". I followed their instructions to use 1 bottle per pound of fabric (my jeans were 13oz), but did it in two gallons of water instead of three. I also added the recommended 1 cup of salt to the water a few minutes after my jeans were submerged. After washing and drying them post-dye, I am very happy with the results! They are back to their beautiful, deep black color and I don't have any missed spots. The only thing I cannot comment on yet is longevity of the dye since I just did it and the jeans have yet to go through the wash again. I will update my comments should the dye not hold, but I am hoping it does!

I had time so I did this @ nite I left to sit overnite .This gives BEST Color Absorption and rich BLACK I wanted. In Morning I CAREFULLY drained in sink (Stainless )..Used CLOD TAP (rubber gloves) to RINSE Pants..Wrung Dry and THEN WASHED NO Soap in WASHER under COLD.. they look like new

    Had Office sweater that I wanted to dye black black after two attempts the closest we got was a medium charcoal grey. Its not bad but having a black sweater would go with a lot more clothes in case I need to put it on to stay warm. It's not very cheap to do this but at least it's something.

    I used this to dye golf balls. It worked, but not completely. The dye turned the golf balls a light grey color, even after several applications. This is likely a fault of the golf balls and not the dye itself, as the dye I spilled on my white towel stained dark black almost immediately.

    Value |
    Upstate NYVerified Purchase

    Whenever possible I buy the liquid version - value, definitely, but also ease of use. No risk of one pigment particle causing a flow in the garment. And when trying to dye black items you need double the amount (plus depending on what your base color is, the additional of another pigment - but for that go to the RIT website). I dye clothing articles twice a year - either updating something for my wardrobe - or making a thrift item better suit my needs.

    It works kind of well... |
    Ann Arbor, MI United StatesVerified Purchase

    I used the whole bottle to dye a hat that had faded in some very noticeable spots. I kept finding contradicting/different instructions on how to dye it, so I just went with a mix of the versions. It worked moderately well on my hat, though the faded parts were still visible. Unfortunately, I think I would've had to spot-dye it (is that even a thing?), since it seems like it made the black areas blacker and the faded areas slightly darker. I'm giving it 4 stars because I feel that it would've worked better if I had a better idea of what to do.

    does the job with specific items |
    United States, NYC

    I've been using this dye for many years and it does the job for specific projects. I've found it's important to follow a few key rules before choosing to use black RIT dye. - First of all, the black color will not hold up well to washing. This is why I only dye clothing that isn't washed too frequently anyway, like jackets. If you do wash, definitely wash the dyed garment with other black clothes in cold water. Plan on re-dyeing afterwards if you want to maintain a rich black color. - You will get the best results with 100% cotton or cotton/spandex blend clothing that is already a fairly dark color. For instance, a dark blue jean jacket. Dyeing anything light colored will most likely result in a purple tinged washed out black color. - Forget about the instructions. I dye my item in a bucket, sink, or washing machine using *just enough* water to cover the garment. I also use two bottles of dye instead of just one. I add about a cup of salt depending on how big the garment is. - Submerge the garment in the hottest water the item will tolerate plus the dye and agitate for about 10 minutes to start. - Let the garment soak in the dye FOR AS LONG AS POSSIBLE. At least 8 hours for best results, and agitate when you have the chance. - Rinse the dyed garment with cold water.

    Results vary widely |

    I have used Rit liquid dyes for a long time. The color you get is going to vary widely depending on the fabric you are dyeing. Often the material will hold the dye but the stitching won't. You MAY get more reliable results by bleaching the item first (even whites!) to get rid of any coloring or treatment. But this is still a guess. The black dye will come out anything from charcoal to gray to a sort of blueish purple tint. Other dark colors get the same odd results. I personally don't care because I'm dying old white and gray T-shirts that I wear around the house, so whatever color I end up with is an improvement. Every once in a while I get a color (always different from the stated dye color) that I really like, but then of course it's impossible to duplicate. But I would NOT recommend using this dye on anything you care about.

    I used this dye to dye a pair of Black True Religions; it didn't work. I think this is because I did not follow the directions; I did not steep the jeans for the required time (whoops!).

    I purchased Rit dye (black) powder and another brand Liquid dye. I followed the instructions for both brands. I dyed a cotton men slack using one box packet of Rit and used the other brand for my other slack. Rit requires 1 cup of salt and the other brand requires 4 TBSP. I used a washing machine hot cycle for 30 mins. The Rit brand came out with deep rich black slack whereas the other brand was kinda grayish and not uniform color. I'll buy RIT powder again for my future dyeing needs.

    Not good for black |
    Seattle, WA

    To a layman, logic would tell you jet black would be the easiest color to achieve in dyeing fabrics; dont be fooled- its not. At least not with Rit products. I attempted today to dye 100% cotton cameo fabric black. First I used Rit powder via washer method- failure; barely tinted. Then I tried 2 of the liquid bottles via sink method and while it did tint it, it is a very far cry from "Jet Black" with the cameo very much so visible. On the second bottle I even used 1/2 the water plus the whole bottle just so it would be super concentrated. No dice. After 3 dyeing attempts the cotton is not black, not even close- perhaps at best a "warm purple grey". If you're looking for absolute black, dont bother with this product as its a waste of time, energy, and money. This is not the first time I've been disappointed with the dyeing abilities of Rit products, but it is certainly the last time I will try them.

    Great dye - Really terrible prices |
    San Jose, CA United States

    These prices are really terrible! I just bought 12 - 8oz bottles of various colors at WalMart today for a total of $36.15 (including taxes). The unit price was $2.78 for any color. I thought I would check online to see if it might be a little cheaper. NOPE Even if the $12.04 was for a 3 pack, it's still too much. The dye itself is excellent. An online retailer recently had a closeout sale on a particular shirt that I like. The normal price was $69.95 and at the end the price was $16.50. Great deal I thought! Only problem was that, in my size, only the white remained. I am not really too good with white but I didn't want to pass on this deal. I bought 10 of the white shirts and have been able create a really great bunch of colors with these dyes. Make sure to use the salt with cotton. I have not had any fading or staining problems at all.

    What a nightmare! |

    I guess I would give Rit Black dye 1 star because it did dye my $200 flannel sheet set, the only trouble is they are purple now. I don't like purple. Honestly I'd give the whole experience of dying fabric a negative rating if I could because it was a nightmare. I have dye all on the inside of my washer, tub, floor, dryer and myself. I wasted two days of my life and money on 5 bottles of Rit Black and then more on Tulip dyes to try and fix the disaster. The best I could get is a dark grey color that continuously bleeds. I think at this point I'm just going to burn the sheets so I never have to be reminded of this mistake. If you have never dyed anything before, you will regret it... especially if you start with black and try to do a large project like I did. I have a 1000 sq ft shop with countless tools so I can do things for myself, so when I emphatically state that textile dyeing is best left to one who has access to the right chemicals, equipment, and facilities I hope you take it to heart.

    I followed the instructions on the bottle to dye a shirt.

    Makes fabrics new |
    Verified Purchase

    I loved this black dye. My favorite cardigan was splattered with bleach so I decided to use this. I also had an old dress that has a small splatter on it. I boiled some water, put it in the sink and mixed in a cup of salt along with the dye. I let my two pieces sit for about an hour before running them in the washing machine then drying them. Both pieces came out looking new and I'm so happy.

    I did enjoy dye my cloth. But I failed it. |
    Verified Purchase

    Im a dude. And it was fun using this to dye my redsox cap and yellow hoodie(too bright). The cap came out bit darker because i didnt put it long enough and yellow hoodie became dark greenish-brown color. I want to emphasize this one bottle can only dye couple clothes. If you put too much cloth or too short time, it leaves spot on cloth. (Which i did). I am satisfied and will definitly want to try more.

    I love this dye, it's one of the best I know of for a quick dye without a lot of mess. I use it in my washing machine and most of the time I'm covering a stain on a garment. This time I needed it for some light colored spots on my husbands Polo shirts. I throw a bottle of this in the washing machine, let the shirt soak in it for 15-20 minutes, then run the normal cycle. The clothes came out great.

    A pleasant surprise |
    Verified Purchase

    I was actually pleasantly surprised by this product. I wear a lot of black yoga style pants for work, and most of them were becoming badly faded. I used this dye and was very happy to find that it actually worked. I did the method using the laundry machine, as opposed to the other and it worked well. The only downside is that i had to run my washer 3 times afterwards until it was clean of all the dye. A bit of a hassle but worth it in the end.

    the jeans had dyed very nicely and evenly |
    Verified Purchase

    I tried dyeing a cotton dress with this, and a pair of jeans. I basically boiled some water, poured it in a bucket, added salt, and put the clothes in there for a couple of hours. And when I took them out, the jeans had dyed very nicely and evenly, but the dress was splotchy and unwearable. I also think this entire process is just unbelievably messy. Obviously it's fabric dye, but I had to use my bathtub to rise it. And now my bathtub is black, my sink is black, my hands are black, my bucket is black and my roommates are upset.

    I didn't even need half of the bottle. I used this to dye my pointe shoes black. It's a very messy process but it works. I was only able to wear the black pointe shoes twice after dying them because they made my shoes soft. Next time I will just use a sharpie.

    Great for short term |
    Verified Purchase

    It's easy to use, but with time the color washes away anyways. It's a cheap short term alternative to buying new clothes. I used this one on my yoga pants, and they all got significantly darker at first. 3-4 washes since then and they are back to being light. It's easy to use, you just add hot water and salt and let it soak for a bit. I would probably let it soak for longer than advertised. What's the worst that could happen? It will absorb more color. I don't think this stuff can deteriorate your jeans or pants. Salt soaks are good for thick clothes anyways. Makes the fabric softer.

    Misleading instructions |
    Verified Purchase

    The instructions say that you can dye fabric in a pot/stainless steel sink. This might be the case if you are dying a handkerchief, but if you're dying a pair of thin cotton pants, like I was, this does not work. Despite using a big pot, keeping the water warm, and stirring all the time (!) the pants look horrible as certain areas are darker or lighter than others. Dying them a second time in the washing machine was too late, and the pants are ruined. They should be a lot more specific in their instructions for how to use this product. I'm sure the dye could have worked perfectly if I had put them in the washing machine the first time around, but since we have to use a shared washing machine in the basement of our building, where one cannot extend the wash cycle, we through it would work better to do it in a pot.

    Great dye - Really terrible prices |
    0

    These prices are really terrible! I just bought 12 - 8oz bottles of various colors at WalMart today for a total of $36.15 (including taxes). The unit price was $2.78 for any color. I thought I would check online to see if it might be a little cheaper. NOPE Even if the $12.04 was for a 3 pack, it's still too much. The dye itself is excellent. An online retailer recently had a closeout sale on a particular shirt that I like. The normal price was $69.95 and at the end the price was $16.50. Great deal I thought! Only problem was that, in my size, only the white remained. I am not really too good with white but I didn't want to pass on this deal. I bought 10 of the white shirts and have been able create a really great bunch of colors with these dyes. Make sure to use the salt with cotton. I have not had any fading or staining problems at all.

    Follow the instructions carefully and use salt if you need to. Also, maybe take clothes to the laundry mat when you're done because after a lot of research I finally discovered that it will stain the plastic parts of your washer, and you will have to use bleach to remove those stains. I was dying a cotton jacket that I LOVE and it looks much better. To be honest though, one more dye job probably would have improved it more. The jacket is black and really faded and I was just dying it black again.

    Purchased one bottle and dyed two pairs of black jeans that had faded over time. Followed the instructions on the bottle, using my sink. I left them in the dye for about 3 hours instead of 30-60 minutes as indicated on the bottle. But I wanted to make sure they got really dark black. I am very happy with the results and the jeans have already been through the laundry a couple times, and so far are holding on to most of the color. I would advise that you wash them separately the first few times, as the dye has a tendency to stick around and get on other clothes in the wash (I learned the hard way). Nevertheless, I will be buying another bottle for two additional pairs of black jeans that have started to fade.

    NOT BLACK, but a medium-dark purple with gray & brown tones |
    0

    I tested the Rit black dye on three garments: (1) one white, all cotton pillowcase (2) one white cotton scarf with nylon lace detail (3) two light green cotton-silk (67% cotton; 33% silk) pillow shams I wanted to test the result on different fabrics and colors. The results, in the same order, were: (1) Slightly uneven color. Weird medium purple color with gray and brown undertones -- an ugly color! Stains on the pillowcase still showed. (2) Slightly uneven color. On the main cotton fabric, I got the same medium purple color with gray and brown. On the nylon fabric the color was richer, more purple. Neither was remotely close to black. (3) Slightly uneven color. I got the darkest purple result on the green, cotton-silk pillow shams, oddly enough. I read several testimonials before starting and followers instructions to the T. I used my top-loading washing machine for ease of use, but I did note that some had better luck with a bucket. My next step (since none of the above results are the least bit satisfactory) is to dye my 3 garments again, but this time with "Dylon velvet black" dye using a bucket and boiling water. Because I'm starting with a dark color, I may have better luck. Also, I'll use less water so the color can saturate better. Dylon's black dye is a blue-black, without purple/red undertones. I'm hoping this will neutralize the dreadful purple/gray/brown color I got with Rit. Don't waste your time and resources on Rit! Huge mistake!

    Results vary widely |
    0

    I have used Rit liquid dyes for a long time. The color you get is going to vary widely depending on the fabric you are dyeing. Often the material will hold the dye but the stitching won't. You MAY get more reliable results by bleaching the item first (even whites!) to get rid of any coloring or treatment. But this is still a guess. The black dye will come out anything from charcoal to gray to a sort of blueish purple tint. Other dark colors get the same odd results. I personally don't care because I'm dying old white and gray T-shirts that I wear around the house, so whatever color I end up with is an improvement. Every once in a while I get a color (always different from the stated dye color) that I really like, but then of course it's impossible to duplicate. But I would NOT recommend using this dye on anything you care about.

    Awesome dye, no need to throw away your faded pants!!, I used this on a pair of faded black pants and now they look like new, but keep in mind that after you dye them you have to be extra careful when washing them, I use cold water and I wash them by hand also I use detergent for black clothes and after 6 months they still look like new!.

    Value |
    Verified Purchase

    Whenever possible I buy the liquid version - value, definitely, but also ease of use. No risk of one pigment particle causing a flow in the garment. And when trying to dye black items you need double the amount (plus depending on what your base color is, the additional of another pigment - but for that go to the RIT website). I dye clothing articles twice a year - either updating something for my wardrobe - or making a thrift item better suit my needs.

    Verified Purchase

    If you are looking to dye a really light material black, it is going to be tough. I have experimented with a few black dyes and none of them work great with light fabrics. If you are redying something black, this will work great! I knew this going in so I still give it 4 stars because dark black is nearly impossible to get with DIY at home dyes. Most colors are a dark grey when finished.

    I figured that after white fabric, yellow must be an easy color to cover up with black dye. I followed the instructions on the RIT website to the t and additionally I more than doubled the amount of dye they recommend using. My yellow fabric is now a lovely military olive green. That doesn't really work for a black and white color scheme. The dye will dye your skin better than it will fabric. I shouldn't have wasted my money on dye and just went straight to buying black fabric.

    I bought this to dye a white bra (since a particular style I wanted was only available in white in my size). I used two bottles of dye and let it soak overnight. The dye took perfectly on the straps and lace parts of the bra. The fabric of the cups, however, rinsed back out to a light gray before the water finally ran clear. Luckily because there's decorative lace over the cups it turned out to be a really nice looking effect, but it's absolutely true that different fabrics take to the dye very differently.

    I received this the other day and this AM, I dyed three pair of denim pants (jeans) in the laundry tub. Hot water and wet pants were put together in the tub, mixed constantly for an hour, then drained, drip dry, then in the washer for a quick cold water rinse and they turned out really nice! Nicer than I expected them to, which is always a good thing! Whenever I read about people having issues with the dye process, they were always using the washing machine method, so I opted for the laundry tub and it was easy!!

    I used the whole bottle to dye a hat that had faded in some very noticeable spots. I kept finding contradicting/different instructions on how to dye it, so I just went with a mix of the versions. It worked moderately well on my hat, though the faded parts were still visible. Unfortunately, I think I would've had to spot-dye it (is that even a thing?), since it seems like it made the black areas blacker and the faded areas slightly darker. I'm giving it 4 stars because I feel that it would've worked better if I had a better idea of what to do.

    Buy It, But Be Careful |
    Verified Purchase

    I cannot really say, whether fabric dye iis good or bad, since I had not much success with it. I thought I followed the instructions, but after an enormous effort on my part in the washing machine, the sweater that I wanted to color black came out grayish maroon. I think the reason for its failure was maybe that the fiber was not a natural but of a synthetic material. Another reason might have been the length of time, during which I left my sweater in the machine to soak up the new color. I'm not sure whether this failure wasn't partly my mistake.

    I used an entire bottle to dye a gray cadet hat and a bright pink skull cap. The cadet hat was 60% linen and 40% cotton and turned out a very dark gray but not quite black. The skull cap was 93% cotton and 7% spandex and turned out a dark brown with a pink haze. It did not dye the stitching on either. The dye worked well for what I needed it for (I don't mind if the hat is dark gray instead of black, and the skull cap is going inside the cadet hat for extra warmth, so not a big deal what color that is), but it didn't work 100%. Most black dyes don't, though.

    Great for reviving black jeans! |
    Verified Purchase

    I have a really great fitting pair of black jeans that I wear about 3x per week. After 6 months of owning them, they've certainly taken a beating by being washed constantly and the black was finally too faded for me, so I decided this would be the first time I've ever dyed my clothes since I love my jeans so much! There are a lot of negative comments about this product, so I was hesitant to order. However, upon going to Rit's website, they give a ton of good information on how to properly dye your clothing! The method they recommend for black and other dark colors is the Stovetop method, which I used - just make sure you follow every step (ie. wet your article to be dyed before you submerge it, continuously agitate article for 30 minutes while simmering)! You can go their website and it is listed under "Dyeing Techniques". I followed their instructions to use 1 bottle per pound of fabric (my jeans were 13oz), but did it in two gallons of water instead of three. I also added the recommended 1 cup of salt to the water a few minutes after my jeans were submerged. After washing and drying them post-dye, I am very happy with the results! They are back to their beautiful, deep black color and I don't have any missed spots. The only thing I cannot comment on yet is longevity of the dye since I just did it and the jeans have yet to go through the wash again. I will update my comments should the dye not hold, but I am hoping it does!

    Not good for black |
    0

    To a layman, logic would tell you jet black would be the easiest color to achieve in dyeing fabrics; dont be fooled- its not. At least not with Rit products. I attempted today to dye 100% cotton cameo fabric black. First I used Rit powder via washer method- failure; barely tinted. Then I tried 2 of the liquid bottles via sink method and while it did tint it, it is a very far cry from "Jet Black" with the cameo very much so visible. On the second bottle I even used 1/2 the water plus the whole bottle just so it would be super concentrated. No dice. After 3 dyeing attempts the cotton is not black, not even close- perhaps at best a "warm purple grey". If you're looking for absolute black, dont bother with this product as its a waste of time, energy, and money. This is not the first time I've been disappointed with the dyeing abilities of Rit products, but it is certainly the last time I will try them.

    Beautifully Restored My Expensive Black Trousers |

    I had some nice, rather expensive black trousers which were fading and looking bad from laundering. So instead of throwing them away, I decided to try to revive them by running them through the washer with this Rit black dye. I read the directions carefully and added one cup of salt as they suggested. I was nervous because the dye looked dark purple out of the bottle. But my 2 pair of trousers came out beautifully and have a new lease on life. They are jet black and look new again. The dye process was easy in my washer. Just be sure and clean the washer with a bleach and clear water cycle as per the directions on the Rit bottle.

    What a nightmare! |
    0

    I guess I would give Rit Black dye 1 star because it did dye my $200 flannel sheet set, the only trouble is they are purple now. I don't like purple. Honestly I'd give the whole experience of dying fabric a negative rating if I could because it was a nightmare. I have dye all on the inside of my washer, tub, floor, dryer and myself. I wasted two days of my life and money on 5 bottles of Rit Black and then more on Tulip dyes to try and fix the disaster. The best I could get is a dark grey color that continuously bleeds. I think at this point I'm just going to burn the sheets so I never have to be reminded of this mistake. If you have never dyed anything before, you will regret it... especially if you start with black and try to do a large project like I did. I have a 1000 sq ft shop with countless tools so I can do things for myself, so when I emphatically state that textile dyeing is best left to one who has access to the right chemicals, equipment, and facilities I hope you take it to heart.

    It works! I have used this dye in both Navy Blue and Black for years. I have several Ralph Lauren cotton sweaters that are over 10 years old and still look like new, thanks to Rit Dye. For dark colors, I always use twice the amount of dye, leave them in the machine over night and make sure to use salt. Also remember to wash your machine out afterward with bleach. It's also great for freshing up yoga pants, sweats, t-shirts and socks. Over the years it has saved me thousands of dollars. Do be careful after dyeing, when washing garments use cold, mild detergent and was them together but seperately for a few weeks. That way there is no bleeding on to other clothing.

    If you're on the fence about doing a DIY, just buy whatever it is in the right color. I wish someone gave me that advice. Followed the directions on the Rit website for a couch cover, 60% cotton 40% polyester, 4 bottles. Used their "top loader" washing machine dying instructions. It barely turned my navy cover a darker navy- and was very blotchy. I think in hindsight, I'd use less water (I let the machine's sensor decide) and obviously I'd mix it around more frequently, although I did stir it 3-4 during this 3 hour ordeal. (1 hr to soak, 1 hour for various rinses and a full cycle, 1 hr in the dryer) I think we're just going to throw a blanket and large pillows over it instead of spending more money trying to salvage a $20 cover.

    Verified Purchase

    Effectively did what I wanted it to so far. I wasn't trying to dye anything really black though. I used a more diluted mixture of it to darken some bright shirts I never really wore. Some just got darker, some changed to a new dark color (for example pink turned dark purple), but either way I was happy because they came out dark. I used the "stove top method" so I could control the amount of dye/darkness for each shirt. Making it lighter is as easy as adding more hot water. To make it darker I just took some of the hot dye-water mix out of the pot with a cup, mixed a little more dye into that, and then poured it back into the pot. I had no problems with the shirts dying evenly that way. I also mixed some with leftover red Rit I had and it created a pretty awesome winey-maroon color.

    This stuff is the pits! I tried to dye a pair of my husband's black pants along with my black rib knit sweater. I followed instructions and even used salt to set the dye and vinegar in the rinse water. I ran them through a rinse cycle at least 7 times and even let them sit over night and dye was still bleeding off. Finally, I gave up and dried them. My husband's pants looked slightly darker but still faded due to all the rinsing. They also had a purplish tone. Needless to say, he won't be wearing these anywhere! My sweater came out better but is still a bit faded due to all the rinsing. I had hoped to give new life to the pants but they came out like a mutant. The sweater may work out but I haven't worn it outside yet so who knows what weird colors may emerge in the daylight! I didn't waste a lot of money on this experiment but I did waste too much time.

    I followed the instructions on the bottle to dye a shirt. It turned out looking great... until the next time I washed it, when the shirt turned dark charcoal gray and other clothes in the wash got a purple-black color on them. The next time I washed the shirt by itself and more color washed out. After 3 washes, the shirt is now an uneven gray.

    What's the Big Deal? |
    Verified Purchase

    First a little back ground. I like to make things - things I can't find elsewhere or would be too expensive to buy. I have an army cot I use for search and rescue missions. It kills my back. I decided to get some wood and velcro it to the top of the cot and lay a wool blanket over it for padding and warmth. Problem solved. Back is happy again. But this caused another problem. I needed a bag to carry the slats of wood in. So what to do? I ordered some Rit black dye and Rit fixative through Amazon Prime. As usual they were here in two days. I ordered a yard of 8 ounce cotton canvas duck from ebay for $5. I went to the Rit web site (as other reviewers suggested) and watched a few You Tube videos. I'm not sure why other reviewers find dyeing difficult. It was a breeze for me. I covered the counter tops and the floor with old towels - just in case. I warmed 3 quarts of water in a 6 quart stainless stock pot. I washed the canvas on a quick cycle while the water heated on the stove. I put the dye (all 8 ounces) in the pot, a squirt of dish soap and then put in the canvas. The canvas immediately absorbed the dye. As recommended by Rit, I put in a cup of salt after 5 minutes. I followed the directions and let the canvas soak. I also used tongs to sift the canvas in the pot. I got tired of sifting the canvas after 5 minutes and went on to another project while the canvas soaked. An hour later I poured the black water from the pot into our stainless sink. I rinsed out the fabric in the sink. The water went from black black to purple. The canvas stayed black. Unlike others I did not continue to rinse until the water went clear. I got bored with the rinsing. I sprayed the fixative on the fabric. I still had half a bottle of the fixative so I poured it on the canvas and wrung out the canvas in the sink. The canvas is a black black. Did I say black? Not purple, not blue, certainly not green. Black as night. I gathered up the towels and put them in the washing machine with some bleach for a soak. I also put some bleach in the stock pot and sink. Within 5 minutes the pot was shinier than it was when I started. I did wear old clothes just in case. But this was not a messy process. Perhaps others didn't hold their mouth right. I'm a guy. I have four daughters and a wife - so I know that women are way smarter than men. So if I can do this, anyone can. Now I need to figure out what size to make the bag and get to working sewing it and putting on some carrying straps.

    Verified Purchase

    I always try to keep some black dye around for freshening up clothes or changing the color of items I get from the thrift store! Keep in mind that this is the equivalent to two packets of dry dye and is intended for natural fabrics, not synthetics. I generally get good results from RIT when used in the washing machine or stovetop, but I sometimes feel it's a bit pricy for the quality - overall, I've found I like Jacquard or Dylon better, but that's a personal preference thing.

    Rit dyes work okay for bath mats, small rugs, curtains, etc. but I have not had much success with clothing. I recently dyed a skirt that was 97% cotton. It looked pretty good, but the first time I washed it, the dye basically all came out. Even denim won't hold the dye very long. However, I can really recommend it for bath mats!

    I got these really cool cotton-silk blended shirts at a vintage store a couple of months ago, and while they’re really cool as is, the color is a weird pinkish mauve grey that I absolutely had to get rid of. I looked online for some tips with dying, as I had already gotten this Rit dye for another project (I was dying white that time so it was easier) but I had seen all of the reviews and I figured I wouldn't have success without some tips. I found this DIY blog that said with silk blends you should use a bit of Citric Acid Powder - Ultra Fine Pure Powdered Crystals - Natural Preservative Food Grade Quality (4 oz) in the mix with the dye, and I decided to give it a shot.I boiled some water, put it in the sink and mixed in a cup of the citric acid along with the dye. I let my two pieces sit for about an hour before running them in the washing machine then drying them. They came out absolutely perfect. I used a bit less dye than I would have if I wanted them black, but as I wanted them to come out a little bit “off-black” my method worked absolutely perfectly. As for the citric acid, I used a food grade Nature’s Candy brand, and it was pretty solid. In addition to the dying I’ve used it for a bunch of food projects and cleaning things since. Anyway, get the Rit dye if you want something inexpensive, but expect to have to mix it unless you’re dying something that is white.

    does the job with specific items |
    0

    I've been using this dye for many years and it does the job for specific projects. I've found it's important to follow a few key rules before choosing to use black RIT dye. - First of all, the black color will not hold up well to washing. This is why I only dye clothing that isn't washed too frequently anyway, like jackets. If you do wash, definitely wash the dyed garment with other black clothes in cold water. Plan on re-dyeing afterwards if you want to maintain a rich black color. - You will get the best results with 100% cotton or cotton/spandex blend clothing that is already a fairly dark color. For instance, a dark blue jean jacket. Dyeing anything light colored will most likely result in a purple tinged washed out black color. - Forget about the instructions. I dye my item in a bucket, sink, or washing machine using *just enough* water to cover the garment. I also use two bottles of dye instead of just one. I add about a cup of salt depending on how big the garment is. - Submerge the garment in the hottest water the item will tolerate plus the dye and agitate for about 10 minutes to start. - Let the garment soak in the dye FOR AS LONG AS POSSIBLE. At least 8 hours for best results, and agitate when you have the chance. - Rinse the dyed garment with cold water.

    I use Rit dye all the time, here are some helpful tips! Step by Step CHOOSING FABRICS. Rit works best on many natural, washable fabrics and materials, such as: a. 100% cotton, linen, silk, wool, ramie b. Synthetics such as rayon and nylon c. Fiber blends with at least 60% cotton or other dyeable fiber (blends will tint evenly but will not achieve full color) d. Nylon-based plastic such as those found in buttons, fasteners and lacrosse sticks e. Natural materials such as wood, wicker, paper, feathers and cork But there are fabrics and materials that will not accept dye, such as: a. 100% polyester, acrylic, acetate, fiberglass, spandex and metallic fibers b. Fabrics with rubber backing (bath mats or throw rugs) c. Fabrics with special finishes such as water repellents d. Fabrics with bleach damage or extensive staining e. Fabrics washable only in cold water or labeled “dry clean only” f. Polyethylene plastics such as golf discs g. Polycarbonate plastics such as eyeglass frames Fiber content and weight also effect how color appears making fabrics like cotton, wool and silk absorb dye differently, slightly changing the hue and brightness of the chosen color. If you are in doubt as to whether your fabric will accept dye or achieve the color you want, we recommend testing a swatch. DYE PREP. Cover work area with a plastic table cover or newspaper and have paper towels or sponges handy to protect against any possible spills. Wear rubber gloves to protect hands from getting stained and to insulate them when working with hot water. Use plastic buckets or stainless steel pots for the dye bath. You can also dye in a stainless steel sink. Don’t dye or rinse items in a porcelain or fiberglass sink or tub as they are likely to get stained./p> ACHIEVING TRUE COLOR. Always follow manufacturer’s care instructions for your fabric as well as Rit Dye package or bottle instructions. Remove stains on fabric or use Rit Color Remover before dyeing to get fabric to an off-white or cream color. This will help achieve uniform color results when dyeing. Dissolve powder dye thoroughly in 2 cups of very hot water first to avoid dye spotting. Stir dissolved powder dye or well-shaken liquid dye into dye bath until evenly dispersed. Never pour liquid or powder dye directly on fabric unless looking to achieve a specific creative effect. Be sure to use enough dye for the weight or size of the project. For example, for a pound of dry fabric (about 3 yards), use one package of Rit powder or 1/2 bottle of Rit liquid in 3 gallons of water. You want enough water for the fabric to move freely in the dye bath so that it can absorb the dye evenly across the garment. When dyeing 1 pound of dry fabric in dark or bright colors such as Black, Dark Brown, Cocoa Brown, Navy, Purple, Wine, and Dark Green, use double the amount of dye (2 packages of Rit powder or 1 bottle of Rit liquid) in 3 gallons of water. For the deepest color, use a water temperature of 140ºF/60ºC and keep heat constant while dyeing (the stove top method or a washing machine work best). Note: If tap water is not hot enough, heat water on the stove, in a teakettle or in the microwave. If dyeing a garment more than one color, it’s usually best to start with the lightest color and move to the darkest. For more intense color when dyeing fabrics containing cotton, rayon, ramie, or linen, add 1 cup salt to the dye bath. When dyeing nylon, silk and wool, add 1 cup white vinegar to the dye bath. If possible delay adding the salt or vinegar until 5 minutes after the fabric has been in the dye bath. The delay will help to promote level dyeing. Add 1 tablespoon laundry detergent to all dye baths to help promote level dyeing. The longer the garment is immersed in the dye bath, the deeper the resulting color. Items can remain in the dye bath up to 1 hour as long as the water remains hot. You’ll also have to make sure the item receives constant agitation or stirring. Garments will also look darker when wet and prior to washing. When you remove clothes from dye bath, rinse in warm, then cool water until water runs clear. (Warm water helps to rinse off surface dye more effectively.) Wash your fabric/clothes in warm water with mild detergent and then rinse thoroughly in cool water. Machine dry or hang dry. CARING FOR DYED ITEMS. For the first two or three times, wash your dyed item by itself in cool water with a small amount of non-bleaching detergent. Always wash your dyed clothing with similar colors in cool water with mild detergent. Dry cleaning silks and special fabrics is recommended. CLEANUP. Clean containers and sinks immediately after dyeing by scrubbing with hot water and powdered cleanser or bleach. Clean washing machine using highest water level with hot water, detergent and 1 cup chlorine bleach using complete wash cycle. Clean lint traps. Plastic or rubber machine parts may be tinted but will not stain laundry.

    Good dye I you know how to use it |
    Verified Purchase

    A good dye to find on Amazon, after reading up on how to dye I boiled hot water and poured it into a 5 gallon homer bucket about a third of the way with the dye and salt. Then I slowly put my garments in the bucket and let them soak in there for 2 days since I had a lid to the previously mentioned bucket. Using this method I highly recommend that you rinse and seal the dye of your newly dyed garments. A good rule of thumb is 48 hours soak with one 8 ounce bottle per two-three items.

    Used this to re-dye some jeans that had faded seams due to friction inside of my rain boots. I used a large soup pot, lined with a heavy-duty garbage bag, filled it up with hot water (would recommend boiling the water if your tap doesn't produce skin-melting water like mine, however), and added the dye and salt as instructed. My jeans kept floating to the top, so I was diligent about stirring the concoction every 20 or so minutes so that they got even coverage. They came out just as new!
