Get rich, vibrant color the easy way!
1 pack iDye

+ salt or vinegar
+ 1 washing machine load
= Brilliant Color!


  • 30 brilliant colors for all 100% natural fabrics
  • 16 brilliant colors for polyester & nylon fabrics

Dyeing fabric in a washing machine has never been easier. iDye comes in a packet that dissolves in water which means there is no handling of messy dye powders. Just throw the dye packet in, add salt or vinegar plus your natural fabric and run through the wash cycle. It is the ultimate easy way to get gorgeous color!
iDye Poly requires dyeing over a heat source, such as a stove.

iDye comes in 45 vibrant colors—30 colors for 100% natural fabrics such as cotton, silk, rayon, wool, and linen, and 16 colors for polyesters and nylons.

There are also two laundry aids: Color Remover, which will remove or lighten a color and brighten whites; and Sun Blocker, which when added to the wash cycle will penetrate clothing and will block harmful UV rays from the sun.

The iDye packets come in 14 gram packages and will dye 2 to 3 pounds of fabric.

Each 14gm Dye pack is $4.95

$3.95 when you buy 10 or more packs

Which Dye?

  • for 100% natural fabrics and rayon use iDye
  • for 100% polyester and nylon use iDye Poly
  • for polyester blends use iDye and iDye Poly together

For best results:

  • Prewash garment to remove any sizings, softeners or finishes.
  • Use the stove top method for dark colors (black, brown or olive) or very intense colors (bright yellow, reds).
  • iDye POLY is "ON THE STOVE ONLY" does not work well in the washing machine.
  • Use constant agitation for uniform color.
