Question Toning down Nylon Webbing

I bought some hot pink nylon webbing from here: http://www.strapworks.com/Flat_Nylon_Webbing_p/fnw2.htm

The webbing is much more flourescent in person than what I saw on the website.

Is there a way to tone down the color or intensity? I was thinking of using bleach or even rit color remover, but I don't know how effective this would be on nylon.

you have to be careful because nylon is much more delicate as a fiber than polyester

You can do swatch test (cut small pieces of the fabric/strapping and do different chemical/physical/etc. tests to them) to see if those would effect the color but overall I would say just find some in a softer color and see if you can get a swatch first from the company rather than yardage...That way before you spend a ton on the wrong color, you can see if the color works first.

Well, I need this in a week. You're right though. I think it would have been more prudent to get swatches instead of trusting the preview window.

You may need to color balance your monitor, google it. or you may just need a new monitor.
