Colour Remover Instructions
We have listed basic box instructions for our Colour Remover below or get more fabric dyeing instructions.
Tintex Colour Remover works on the colour, it will not weaken the fabric. Follow the special instructions with your garment. Results may vary, do not expect all colour or all stains to disappear, more than one application may be needed, depending on the fabric and technique.
Washing Machine Method:
Prewash fabric, while still damp, prefill the washing machine with enough water to cover the item. Dissolve Tintex Colour Remover in the machine then add the fabric. Use one package per pound (454 grams) of fabric. Continue agitation from 20 to 40 minutes or until the required amount of colour is removed (repeat process if a lighter colour is desired). Wash the fabric as usual after sufficient colour is removed. You are now ready to use Tintex Fabric Dye.
Stove Top Method:
Wash the item, rinse and leave damp. Fill a stainless steel pot with hot water. Do not use a container that will later come in contact with food. Heat the water until it is simmering. Add Tintex Colour Remover and mix thoroughly. Add fabric and continue to agitate for 20 to 40 minutes or until the desired amount of colour is removed. (repeat process if a lighter colour is desired). Rinse the fabric in hot water and wash as usual. You are now ready to use Tintex Fabric Dye.
Always protect work area and wear rubber gloves when using Tintex products.
