How to lighten colour of dyed fabric
Hiya! I dyed a light blue coat and piece of twill fabric, but the result of the dying was far too dark. I tried using some some Rit pre-dye powder to reduce the colour, but there was no change. The instructions said to wash the pre-dye powder with the fabric at 90°C, but as the washing temp of the coat was 40°C, and as the coat has a polyester lining, I thought that it would cause the coat to shrink and have an over-large lining. Should I risk trying to use the pre-dye again at 90°C, or can anybody recommend any different products or methods to either lighten the colour or remove it so I can re-dye the coat and fabric? Any help is greatly appreciated ^_^
If in doubt, hide underneath the table until it goes away.
