    Hello folks. Another quick question. This will be my first time dyeing fabrics. Other than using gloves, what precausions might I take. Does anyone know of good formulas to use for the colors? What brand should I use and where can I get it? Also, I'd love to be able to do this in just a bucket or a washing machine. What would you guys suggest? Any help will be great.

    FYI, polyester based fabrics don't dye well at all...
    (Yes, I learned the hard way... sigh)

    Or faux fur....always try a small sample of the fabric you want to dye :)
