When it stinks to high heaven ...

How many times have you collected costumes after the performance or the shoot that reeked strongly of sweat? Unfortunately very often there's no time to bring the costumes to the cleaner's or to wash them before the next use.
Popular remedies like vodka only help to a limited extent and textile fresheners like Febreze just give the garments an even more disgusting smell and cover the actual culprit. 


More DYLON colour tones 

We are often asked why certain shades that are so important for professional dyers have been removed from the DYLON range. Unfortunately, we cannot give you an answer as we do not know the circumstances that led to such decisions.  

We could get the recipes for some of the very well-known colour tones from the former DYLON palette. With a good scale, self-mixing should not be a problem.


Acetone - the perfect leather cleaner?

Many of our customers frequently ask us if acetone can be used for dye preparation instead of Fiebing's Deglazer or PURE 100%, as a finish remover so to speak.
Sorry, but - the answer is no!
