Once you've made sure your fabric is A-OK for a dye job, you then need to make sure you wash it (especially if it's never been washed before). "Prior to engaging in the dyeing process, we recommend that you put your garment into a washing machine—there does not need to be any detergent—on a warm, gentle cycle," says Breining. "That’s to see how it reacts to water and how it reacts to the agitation of water. If your textile has never been washed before, then to attempt to dye a garment for the first time, you may experience excessive shrinkage." Afterward, hang-dry the garment, and try it on to make sure it fits the way you want it to. Then, you'll be good to go with the actual dyeing process. The longer the fabric is soaked in the tea, the darker the color will be. Tea staining is a great option if you prefer a more subtle and vintage-inspired cream color. However, it is important to note that tea staining may not result in a completely even color, as the dyeing process can be somewhat unpredictable. If you have new, heavily coloured clothes, soak them in white vinegar. The acetic acid will seal the fabric dye, which may help prevent colour bleeding. Q. Can you use baking soda to remove colour run? When it comes to washing and caring for your newly dyed fabric, it is important to follow the instructions specific to the type of dye you used. In general, it is recommended to wash the fabric separately for the first few washes to prevent any color bleeding. There are contradicting opinions about the effects of salt on clothing. Others use it to prevent colour fading when dying fabrics. However, some sources say that salt can damage garments and cause their colours to weaken. So, take it with a grain of salt (pun intended). After all, there are little to no studies supporting both claims.

The average front loader washing machine uses 50 litres per cycle, so all up I used 200 litres of water. In Australia, it takes on average 2,400 litres of water to grow one kilogram of cotton, according to Australian Cotton – which makes it some of the most water-efficient cotton in the world. But it’s unlikely Australian cotton was used in either product (although they are both from Australian designers). The jumper is organic cotton, which is not grown in Australia, and the pants have a Better Cotton Initiative certification, which indicates higher standards for farming that could align with Australian standards – but it’s hard to say. After submerging the fabric in the dye bath, it’s time to agitate and soak the fabric. Gently stir the fabric in the dye bath to ensure even distribution of the dye. You can use a spoon, tongs, or your hands to agitate the fabric. The longer you agitate the fabric, the more intense the color will be. It’s also important to choose a dye color that will create the cream shade you desire. 2. Prepare the Fabric When it comes to dyeing white fabric cream, there are a few steps you can follow to achieve the desired results. The process involves submerging the fabric, agitating and soaking it, and adjusting the dye to achieve lighter or darker shades. 1. Submerging the fabricDifferent fabric dyes may have different application methods, so be sure to choose the one that suits your needs. Bleach Once washed, dyed and washed again, the garments are ready to dry in the shade, away from any direct sources of heat. I spread both on a clothes horse and smooth out any creases. Clean your machine For more detailed instructions and tips on dyeing fabric, visit The Spruce Crafts or Dharma Trading Co. They offer a wealth of information and resources to help you successfully dye your white fabric cream. Dyeing the Fabric The stovetop method: Fill a pot with enough water that your garment can move around in it, cover it, and heat to just below boiling. Follow the mixing directions on your box of dye, but when the water begins to simmer, add the dye solution and mix well. Next, add the garment, and keep things at a low simmer. Stir slowly and continuously, paying close attention for the first 10 minutes (which are the most critical in the process). Clothing can hang out in the dye-water for up to an hour, but how long you keep it in there depends on what type of fabric you're dying. When it appears to have reached your desired color (keep in mind that it looks slightly darker when wet), remove and squeeze out excess dye. Another method to dye white fabric cream is by using bleach. Bleach works by removing the natural color of the fabric, creating a blank canvas for dyeing. However, it is important to note that bleach can weaken the fabric fibers and may cause damage if not used properly.

Pro tip: It’s always a good idea to test the dye on a small piece of fabric or an inconspicuous area before dyeing the entire fabric. This will help you determine the desired dye-to-fabric ratio and avoid any potential surprises. By gathering all the necessary materials before you start the dyeing process, you’ll be well-prepared and ready to achieve that beautiful cream color on your white fabric. Making the Dye Bath Removing stains: Wash the fabric before you dye to remove any soil, fabric finishes, or sizing in the material. Do your best to remove stains, especially oil stains, since stains affect how dye is absorbed.Make the dye bath according to the dye instructions, then submerge, agitate, and soak the fabric until the desired shade develops. Finally, properly rinse, dry and care for the fabric to set the color. Pro tip: To achieve a more uniform color, consider periodically lifting the fabric out of the dye bath and allowing it to rest for a few minutes before agitating it again. 3. Achieving lighter or darker shades In addition to the fabric and dye, you will need a few supplies to ensure a successful dyeing process. Here are some essential items:
