The most realistic test would be to usea scrap piece of fabric from the garment you are dyeingand leave it in the dyebath for 5 minutes. If a scrap pieceof fabric isn’t available, then use a fabric swatch thathas a similar fiber makeup as the garment (if available).Unfortunately, using a paper towel to test color will not giveyou a close representation of how the color will appearon your synthetic fabric. It is worth a try if you do not havea swatch available, but please keep in mind that it won’tprovide you with an exact match for color.fabric being dyed. If the color is too dark, add hot water in 1 to2 cup increments, depending upon the size of the dyebath andthe amount of fabric being dyed.Enhance Color and Reduce BleedingWe strongly recommend using Rit ColorStay Dye Fixativeimmediately after dyeing to reduce bleeding and enhance thecolor of your dye project.
