    I just dyed my girth belt using Dylon Cold Water dye.
    It didn't take at all.

    Do I need to soak it in acetone? If so, where will I get a bottle of acetone big enough without paying silly amounts... Or is there anything else I can use?

    WalMart has acetone in the paint section. So does Home Depot, Lowes, etc.

    Soak that bad boy overnight, nail it to a baord while it dries so it doesnt shrink.

    Dye using RIT dye and boiling water. Theres a thread around here somewhere that details the exact procedure...

    Good luck!

    Is your girth mohair, and untreated? Some girths are made of a synthetic material and some are mohair but treated so they can't really dye. E2K13 knows a lot more about them, hopefully he has some advice.

    I'm not certain. I bought it from Kurtyboy, so maybe he'll know.
    AFAIK it seems to be synthetic :|
