Stupidly left DD's uniforms on the line for a day or two too long. The dark blue of the bottoms and the red tops now have sun bleach/faded lines through them Is it possible to somehow redye them? Google isn't being a lot of help. Is it as easy as soaking them in blue or red fabric dye?
I'm not sure, but that must of been some extreme heat. I am in Perth where it is super hot and no fading issues even when the clothes have been left on the line for 2-3 days. Maybe I need to hang the bright colours in the shade?
It was extreme heat and we had some health issues going on so they got hung and ignored for longer than I care to admit I like the idea of hanging in the carport, it would be easy to run a line across, thanks.
I might visit spotlight tomorrow and do a test shirt, see if it affects the logos.
If they are cotton, they will dye very well. If the logo's are synthetic thread, they shouldn't be affected. I have a few Bonds wondersuits that dyed beautifully and the sewn on Bonds logo on the chest wasn't changed in any way.
I love dying clothes! My favourite dye is the dylon machine dye thst they sell at Woollies because the washing machine does all the hard work. Works best in a front loader. I wear lots of black which always fades on the line so I re dye it all every few months and they're like new again.
