Dyeing Procedure

The following procedure is a suggestion for tie dyeing. There are many variations and other tie dyeing methods may work as well or better than the guidelines listed here.

Prepare to dye! Wear old clothes that you don't mind ruining, this can get very messy.

Prepare work area using a large flat table with garbage bags over the surface to hold liquid dye spills.

Use clean garments Fold the goods in order to create the desired pattern. Tie with light rubber hands. *These steps can be delayed until after pre-soaking if you prefer. Pre‑soak garments in the following solution for approximately 20 minutes. Wear rubber gloves as the pH of Soda Ash is around 10‑12, a strong base solution that will irritate skin. DO NOT GET IN EYES!!!!

Use a clean 5 gallon bucket or plastic drum depending on how many garments you have.

  • Mix solution using 1/4 lb. of Soda Ash per gallon of hot tap water. Stir well for 1‑2 minutes.
  • Immerse garments in Soda Ash solution for 20 minutes.


After Pre-Soak

  • Wring out excess water from Soda Ash solution.
  • Fold garments in manner desired for dyeing.
  • Tie with light rubber bands.


Apply dye solution using preferred method: squirt bottle, dipping, sponge brush, etc.

Cover garments with more plastic bags after dyeing to seal in moisture. Let sit for 5 hours minimum. For the best results let them sit for 24 hours in an out of the way space.

Rinse thoroughly in sink using warm water until most residual dye has been washed out.

Cut rubber bands being careful not to cut the fabric.

Launder garments with Synthrapol (colored cycle) and fabric softener to improve the “hand” of the fabric.

Tumble dry on normal cycle. Finished!
