Dyeing PF solid colors?

What do you use to dye PF solid colors? I have some PF and I'm really not into the whole tie-dyed thing, but I love the solid color ones.

Re: Dyeing PF solid colors?

Dylon permanent fabric dye is probably a good choice. I found it in the craft section at Walmart for something like $1.97 a packet. The packet will tell you the weight of the dry fabric that it will dye...I can't remember off the top of my head but it's quite a few prefolds. It's really easy to use. You wash the PFs, fill a bowl or bucket or sink or whatever with enough water to cover the PFs and still allow them to "slosh" around a bit, add some salt (it tells you how much), mix the dye powder with warm water, add the dye to the water with the dipes, and let soak for an hour. Rinse them until the water runs clear, then wash them separately for a few times to make sure they won't bleed. I think I washed mine 3 or 4 times on hot before I noticed that the rinsewater was clear and not blue or red!

Good luck!
