Dye polyester really nice

Until now it was not possible to dye polyester materials without a special technique. 
iDye Poly from the USA is the only textile dye on the market which also gives new colour to "non-dyeable" polyester.
iDye Poly is a hot water textile dye for synthetic polyester and nylon fabrics.
With this textile dye you can also dye buttons, wigs, Worbla etc.

Dyeing polyester yarn seams 

You must have come across this problem: after dyeing the garment shines in a new colour - only the seams still have their original colour. 
iDye Poly dyes these seams the desired colour. Add iDye Poly and iDye Natural to the same dye bath. 
Your cotton piece will then be dyed through and through without annoying visible seams or labels (labels and tags are also made of polyester and will also be dyed).   

Hot water dye at 95°C? The label says: wash polyester only up to 30°C!

Forget about the manufacturer's recommendations! Cotton and linen can be washed without any problems at hot temperatures - the same applies to polyester or polyamide (nylon).
The cotton in your jeans has been bleached at high temperatures several times and washed before becoming a piece of clothing. And why do you have to iron cotton and linen at the highest temperature if the manufacturer says these fabrics cannot stand temperatures higher than 30°C? 
The problem is rather high spin speeds and drying in the tumble dryer. This causes clothes to shrink. Not  a hot wash. 

Polyester dyeing in the washing machine or by hand with iDye Poly?

Actually, iDye Poly is meant for hand dye. But iDye Poly also works in the washing machine. 

Hand dye: according to the manufacturer, 1 pack (14g of dye plus 14ml of dye intensifier) is enough for 1000 - 1300g of fabric. However, we recommend only 400 to 500 gram of fabric per iDye Poly pack.
• Dye temperature is 95°C.
• The fabric must simmer in the pot while dyeing. The heat is necessary for the dye to penetrate the polyester. 
Washing machine dye: take 3 packs of iDye Poly for 500 gram of fabric. Otherwise the dye result will be very weak. 
• Dye temperature is 95°C.
Please note: The components of your washing machine are normally made of painted metal, PVC plastics and rubber. These materials cannot be discoloured by iDye Poly. If your washing machine is made of other, more specific materials, discolourations may occur. Please use the dissolved dyes carefully (pour slowly into the detergent compartment, using a suitable container). 

Paint shoe soles / sneaker soles with iDye  Poly?

iDye Poly is very versatile and is also excellent for painting rubber soles. It is recommended by leading sneaker artists.
You also need acetone or Fiebing's Deglazer.
The video shows you how to do it:

Caution: Problems with dyeing?

• Garments with downs must never be dyed with  iDye Poly, as high temperatures would stick the downs together. 
• Some polyester fibres are coated with special impregnations or light protection materials (e.g. curtains, parasols, garden furniture cushions). These fabrics cannot be dyed. Unfortunately, one only notices this after dyeing, when the dye result is very weak. 
• An insufficient or weak dye in the washing machine very often indicates a too low dye temperature and/or too little dye. Make sure to weigh the dry fabric and use 3 packs of dye per 500g of fabric. If you dye less than 500g of fabric you still need 3 packs of iDye Poly. For each additional 500g of fabric you will need a further pack of dye (e.g. for 1500g of fabric you will need 5 packs of dye). 
• Stick-on labels or emblems (made of vinyl, rubber or other plastics) may be damaged during the dyeing process. Please try to remove the labels beforehand. 


• 1 drop of Synthrapol or washing up liquid (takes surface tension)
• Please wear rubber gloves.


• 14g Dye powder
• 14ml Color Intensifier for iDye Poly

Jacquard iDye Poly - Instructions

Easy-to-use soluble dye packet. For 100% polyester and nylon fabrics. Dyes 2-3 lbs/1-1.3 kg of dry fabric.
iDye Poly is not odorless—use in a well-ventilated area. 

Not all synthetic fibers are created equal. Results may vary depending on type of fabric, temperature of dye bath and dura- tion. Always test first.
Dye bath is safe to pour down drain/septic systems.

Which iDye?

• for 100% natural fabrics use iDye for Natural Fabrics
• for 100% polyester & nylon use iDye Poly
• for fabric blends that contain both natural and synthetic fibers, combine similar colors of iDye for Natural Fabrics and iDye Poly* 

For best results:

• Read entire instructions before starting.
• For best results, and maximum color intensity, use stove top method.
• Use constant agitation for uniform color.

NOTE: for lighter shades, use less dye.
Polyester is difficult to dye and requires high heat to achieve good color; therefore, we only recommend dyeing polyester with the stove top method.

NOTE: Instructions are for achieving the most vibrant color. For lighter shades, dissolve dye packet in small container with hot water. Add the appropriate amount of dissolved dye to the dye bath to achieve the desired shade. Keep in mind that color will deepen the longer the fabric is in the dye bath.

Stove top method for 100% polyester and nylon:

Note: utensils and pot used for dyeing should not be used for food.
1. Fill a stainless steel or enamel pot with just enough water for the fabric to move freely. Turn heat on high.
2. Add the iDye Poly soluble dye packet and iDye Color Intensifier to water and stir until dissolved.
3. Add pre-wetted garments or fabric and bring to a rolling boil. Maintain temperature and stir frequently for 
1⁄2 to 1 hour. For uniform color, use constant agitation.
4. Wash the garment with a mild detergent and dry.

Stove top method for fabric blends that contain both natural and synthetic fibers:

1. Fill a stainless steel or enamel pot with just enough water for the fabric to move freely. Turn on to high heat.
2. Choose the iDye Poly color closest to the iDye for Natural Fabrics color you are using and add both packets to dye bath. Add Color Intensifier and stir until dissolved.
3. Add pre-wetted garments/fabric and bring to a boil.
4. Add 1 cup/270 g of non-iodized salt for cotton, linen and rayon or 1/3 cup/78 ml. of white vinegar for silk. 
Avoid pouring directly onto fabric.
5. Maintain a rolling boil and stir frequently for 1⁄2 to 1 hour. For uniform color, use constant agitation.
6. Gradually cool the fabric, wash with a mild detergent and dry. 

Dyeing in the washing machine

1. Dissolve the iDye Poly dye sachet in hot water and add iDye Color Intensifier.
2. Load the washing machine with the items to be dyed and set on the longest and hottest washing programme (95°C) without pre wash.
3. Run the machine for at least 10 minutes so that the water can heat up.
4. Now pour the dye liquor in the washing powder compartment.
5. The garments should now dye for at least 1 hour.
6. Finally wash the garments with a mild detergent and leave to dry.


iDye FAQs and Troubleshooting

Can I dye rayon with iDye? How about nylon?
Yes, iDye Natural works great for dyeing rayon (which is essentially synthetic cotton). Nylon must be dyed using iDye Poly.

Is it non toxic?
If used according to the instructions, iDye is safe.

What kind of pots can I use?
Do not use a pot you intend to cook with in the future. Stainless steel or enameled pots work best. Aluminum pots are not recommended, but will work in a pinch.

Will a Teflon pot work?

What is the dissolvable packet made of?
PVA (Poly Vinyl Alcohol).

Is the dye bath safe for septic tanks?

What is the safest and greenest way to dispose of it?
Dispose according to local and state regulations.

How much fabric will a packet dye?
Up to 3 lbs for deep shades. Much more can be dyed, but the depth of shade will begin to decrease.

For darker colors should I get 2 packets?
It depends on how much fabric you are dyeing and how much water you are using. Darker colors are achieved by using more heat, using less water or using more dye.

I’m worried about shrinkage. Do I have to use hot water? Why?
Yes. Many of the dyes are blends of many colors. Each color strikes at different temperatures with 180°F being optimal. So, to achieve the best and most accurate color possible, hot water is needed. If your fabric cannot withstand high tem- peratures, consider using a cold-water dye like DEKA aktuell or Procion MX.

Do I need to add salt and/or vinegar?
It is not absolutely necessary, but highly recommended for maximum color intensity.
• Salt for cellulose based fibers (cotton, line, hemp, etc.)
• Vinegar for proteins based fiber (silk, wool, feathers, etc.) 

What is the salt/vinegar for?
To drive the dye into the fabric. 

Can the colors be mixed together?

What if I want a lighter shade?
Use less dye! Dissolve the dye in a jar and use just what you need. The rest you can save and use next time. You can also cut open the dye packet and pour out just a pinch of powder. Dyeing at lower temperatures is another way to achieve paler colors.

Do I use the iDye Fixative with the iDye Poly?
No. The fixative is only used with iDye Natural. It ensures better washfastness.

Can I save the dye bath and reuse it later?
Yes, but it is not recommended. It is unlikely that the second dyeing will produce the same color as the first, especially when using an iDye color that is composed of multiple dyes. This is because each color in the blend strikes at a different rate, which means the ratio of colors left over in the dye bath will change after the first dyeing. If consistent color isn’t a concern, just remember that you may have to reheat the dye to get the dye back into solution.

After it is mixed in the water, how long will it last?
Indefinitely. However, over time, the dye fill fall out of solution. To re-dissolve the dye will require heat.

Can I airbrush with iDye?
Theoretically, yes, but it is not recommended. Jacquard offers a number of products that are more suited for spraying. Consider using Jacquard CVS dyes or Dye-Na-Flow for airbrushing applications. Contact us so we can make a recommendation.

How do I tie dye a polyester shirt using iDye Poly?
Use the sublimation method or apply dye and then steam at > 212°F. Alternatively, the fabric can be tied and then sub- merged in the boiling dye bath.

How can I paint on fabric using iDye?
It is possible, but not recommended. Consider using Jacquard’s fabric paints or a cold water dye for this application.

If left unopened, how long will it last?

The color is bleeding. What did I do wrong?
Maybe nothing! Some colors, like crimson, tend to bleed. To stop this, use the iDye Fixative. The fixative works great to increase the washfastness of any color.

My black came out olive green. What happened?
The dye bath was not hot enough. When using black, it is important to achieve at least 180°F. Sometimes, it may also require a longer dye time.

Why did the fabric not turn out the same as the picture on the packet?
The picture is only an approximation. All fibers will yield slightly different colors. Sometime different fibers can yield dra- matically different colors, too!

I recently used some iDye Poly dye on a clothing item and there is a strong chemi- cal smell left on the fabric. Is there anything that I can do to remove the smell from the fabric?
Wash in HOT water several times with a strong detergent.

What would be the best way for me to achieve a very light shade on a 100% polyester dress?
Use just a portion of the dye in the packet. You can either pre-dissolve the dye in a jar and pour off a small amount, or cut open the packet and carefully scoop out a small amount of powder.

Why does the navy blue iDye for Natural Fibers look like purple when mixed in the water?
Our Navy is a very warm/red navy. At lower concentrations, it will dye a purplish color. However, at high concentration, it’s a beautiful warm navy blue. The red component has a lower strike rate than the other components. So it has to have more red to get the warm tones of navy. This makes it look purple in solution. Remember that the color of a dye bath (the color of dye in solution) will always be slightly different than the color it produces on fabric.

I just used the iDye Color Remover on a pair of store-bought jeans. After 40 minutes on the stove (just below boiling and CONSTANT stirring) they are the same color!
Not all dyes are dischargeable. The Color Remover is effective at removing iDye colors from natural fabrics, but it is not guaranteed to work on other dyes. Test first!

I have just finished using stainless steel pots to stovetop dye some fabric. If they are washed thoroughly, can I use them to cook with again?

No. Pots or utensils used for dyeing should NOT be used for food. 

What do you suggest for ensuring that iDye colors do not leach into washing machine interior plastic hulls?
Either pre-dissolve the packets before adding the dye to the washing machine, or run several washes after the dye job, using HOT water and bleach. 

Will iDye for Natural Fabrics work in a front loading washing machine?
Yes, you can watch a video on how to do it here: https://vimeo.com/jacquardproducts/idye

Can I use iDye Poly in the washing machine?
No, iDye Poly requires very high temperatures. It should only be used on the stovetop.

I dyed a cotton garment using iDye for Natural Fabrics but all the threads remained white. What happened?
The threads used to stitch commercial garments are often made of polyester, which will be untouched by iDye for Natural Fabrics. To color the threads at the same time as the garment, mix the same colors iDye Natural and iDye Poly in the dye bath and use the stovetop method.

I dyed a synthetic garment with iDye Poly and even the buttons took the color. What happened?

iDye Poly will color just about anything synthetic, including plastic buttons.

Ich habe meinen Pullover mit der iDye Poly - Polyester Textilfarbe 457 Crimson gefärbt. Der Pullover hat die Farbe sehr gut angenommen. Leider ist bei dem Ton die nachfolgende Wäsche rot geworden. Daraufhin habe ich mich an der Firma gewandt, wo mir auch sofort geholfen wurde. DANKE DAFÜR 👍 Habe dann 2x die Waschmaschine mit bleiche laufen lassen ( zur Sicherheit ) und danach 1x mit Waschpulver ( benutze sonst nur flüssig Waschmittel ) und es hat geklappt. Fazit.....einen wunderschönen Pulli und eine Waschmaschine die blitzsauber ist. Würde immer wieder bei ihnen kaufen. LG.

Tolles Produkt

Ich wollte einen weißen Pullover aus 100% Polyester in schwarz umfärben und musste zu meinem Entsetzen feststellen, dass man Polyester eigentlich gar nicht färben kann. Durch Zufall stieß ich bei meinen diesbezüglichen Recherchen auf diese Seite und las von ihrem tollen Produkt (iDye Poly) - übrigens das derzeit einzige auf dem deutschen Markt - mit dem es trotzdem gelingen sollte. Ich las mir die genauen Beschreibungen und guten Rezensionen dazu durch, sah mir das Video an und stellte außerdem per E-Mail noch Fragen, die sehr freundlich und zügig beantwortet wurden. Daraufhin wurde bestellt und die Lieferung kam wirklich schnell und liebevoll verpackt an, zusammen mit einer genauen Gebrauchsanweisung auf deutsch. Nun habe ich einen schwarzen Pullover und bin sehr zufrieden. :-) Es hat wunderbar funktioniert. Ich habe im Kochtopf genau nach Anweisung in der Küche auf dem Herd und bei geöffnetem Fenster gefärbt. Der Geruch war überhaupt nicht extrem und wirklich gut händelbar. Alles in allem bin ich sehr zufrieden und kann das Produkt *iDye Poly* wie auch die Firma PATIN-A nur empfehlen!

Durchweg positiv

Ich hatte Textilfarbe bestellt. Preislich lag die Farbe weit unter dem Normalpreis, den ich auf anderen Shops für diesen Hersteller gefunden habe. Das Produkt selbst hielt was es versprach. Der Händler war top. Der Versand ging auch sehr schnell. Also alles bestens und nach meiner Erfahrung ohne Einschränkung zu empfehlen.

Parfait 👍

Teinture polyester excellent rendu ! Couleur anthracite fidèle au descriptif uniforme . J’ai suivi les instructions et teint mes housses de canapé de jardin décolorés par le soleil dans une marmite d’eau bouillante . J ai doublé les doses pour une couleur intense et le résultat est plus que parfait 👌😍🤩

Glücklicherweise beste Ergebnisse beim Färben der Outdoorkissen

Bei Lieferung, Qualität und Service kann ich mich nur den Vorbewertungen anschließen, insbesondere der Service war wirklich einzigartig und hervorragend! Dank der guten Beschreibung und Bestärkung habe ich mich dann auf das Wagnis des Färbens meiner Outdoor-Loungekissen eingelassen. Im Vorfeld hatte ich bereits ein Kissen mit herkömmliche Färberfarbe in der Waschmaschine gefärbt was dann allerdings, wohl ob der Polyester Qualität, so rauskam wie ich es reingesteckt habe. Nach Anweisung und tatsächlich bei 90° habe ich dann insgesamt knapp 15 Kissen unterschiedlicher Größe laut anliegender Beschreibung von PATIN-A mit gutem Ergebnis in vier Waschmaschinenladungen von hellgrau auf schwarz gefärbt. Jeweils mit fünf Päckchen und etwa 1500 g, im Ergebnis jedenfalls immer noch deutlich günstiger als die Neuanschaffung von Kissenbezüge, die es ohnehin in den entsprechenden Größen kaum gibt. Ich bin jedenfalls glücklich und rund um zufrieden mit meinem Werk.
