I walked past this happy little packet of home dye when I was looking for red biros (I was in the wrong aisle). I have some white Habitat towels that have gone a bit grey, or meh. Instead of chucking out perfectly decent Egyptian cotton, I decided to give this home washing machine dye a whirl. An impulse dye, more than an impulse buy.
It’s very easy to do (I managed it without dying myself the colour of a Smurf in the process). You empty the dye straight into the washing machine drum, followed by 500g of salt (I used Dylon’s Dye Salt for £0.48), shove your fabric in, run at 40 degrees C, run again at 40 degrees C (with the addition of fabric detergent) and dry. Bob’s you uncle, Fanny’s your aunt, and now when they come and stay they’ve got some lovely bright guest towels to use.
I bought my Dylon Bahama Blue Fabric Dye from Wilkinson’s for £4.99: http://www.wilko.com/fabric-dyes/dylon-fabric-dye-bahama-blue-200g/invt/0298025?VBMST=dylon
