How long does tie dye have to sit?
Let the fabric sit for 2-24 hours. The longer you can let the fabric sit, the easier it will be to wash out loose dye from the fabric. The length of time you let the fabric sit is not overly critical. If you are in a hurry, let the fabric sit for as long as your deadline will allow.
Can you save tie dye if you don’t use it all?
Unless you can refrigerate your dyes, I recommend that you mix only as much as you can use up within a week or two. If you are storing the dyes in an unairconditioned space during the summer, mix the dye powders with water no more than one or two days before use.
Should I tie dye wet or dry?
We generally recommend washing your fabric and leaving it damp before tie – dyeing, as the dye has an easier time saturating the fabric when it’s wet. But depending on the technique and the look you want, you can apply dye to dry fabric. Just make sure the fabric has been washed (if it’s new) to remove the sizing.
Can I use apple cider vinegar to set tie dye?
Vinegar will do nothing to set tie – dye on cotton! At worst, it can actively prevent the dye from binding to the cotton.
How do you make tie dye without soda ash?

Then, when it’s time to give your garments their inaugural scrub, wear gloves and give them a good rinse under running water to get rid of any excess dye.
Do you really need to let tie dye sit for 24 hours?
The first step to completing your tie – dye is to let your shirt (or dress, bag, scarf, towel, etc.) soak for AT LEAST one hour.
