From what I understand, the synthrapol will remove all excess dye. I do know that we'll need to wash a couple times to remove the synthrapol as that can be pretty harsh . . . I know a LOT of mamas use the dharma dyes, and I haven't heard of any problems with babies' butts. . .
We did it! About half of our diapers came out nice, the other half, well at least we're just using them around the house! (We used the teeny tiny tie dye kit from dharma)
We don't use them for butts, but for "burp cloths" which right now means wiping up all the drool, as I seem to have a drool machine. The other day she got ahold of it and gnawed on it for a while. No leaking from the dye, and no ill effects . . .
Ok so now I'm dying to see pictures! I have 2dz infant IPF's on the way and was thinking about dyeing them but am a little nervous. Was it difficult? Is it worth the money for the dyes?? I see the kits but am not a fan of the colors so I'd bye different colors to go with it.
Thank you! I just followed the directions that came with my kit . . . And that I found online. . . And only half of them turned out nice. . . Besides, I like your flowers!!! (Here is what I learned: Rolling is bad with pfs, as the dye didn't make it through to the middle. Pleating worked best, as long as I made the pleats small . . . )
I had so much fun, I'm thinking of buying some different colors and dyeing a bunch of clothes. Wanna come over and do it with me?
