I'm looking for some help, I have 2 sets of coveralls 100% cotton. They are light blue and I'm trying to get them as light as possible so I can dye them ROTJ grey.
I've tried to do it twice and they don't look any lighter. I tried the following..
Filled laundry tub with hot water from my tap, just enough to cover both coveralls....added Dylon pre-color (1 small metal disk container). Stired things around and waited 30 minutes. No change to the color.......I rinsed them out and added bleach to clean water and let it sit......still no change.
I got 5 packages of RIT color Remover and ran through the washing machine with hot water, half full of water or less, 25 mins of agitation, rinse cycle and washed with soap.......maybe a little bit lighter but almost no change.....
All I can think of is either my water isn't hot enough or if I'm not using enough RIT Color Remover. Again, they are 100% cotton and pretty much a perfect Jango color right now.
What am I doing wrong? Any Ideas?
