Okay, I've managed to try it again and I got some good results. Third time's the charm! I ended up using about only two litres of water and another half packed of dye powder, plus some salt. I didn't do a lot of rinsing after dyeing it, so hopefully I won't have to wash it.

I did a bit of research and it turns out that the Dylon and dyes are not pure dye powders, but it also includes sodium ash. So more powder is required than what I had thought. I also learned that the dyes don't take temperatures above 50 degrees Celsius too well.

I think the reason why I couldn't take the dye the second time was because I had used the dye solution I kept from the day before. Apparently the soda ash degrades after a few hours. =/
