I got some Ritt Dye today because I want to dye some diapers, but I couldn't find an ingredient listing or anything on the box to see what the stuff is made of.<br><br>
I'm wondering if this stuff is Ok to use on diapers since they'll be next to her genitals. I want something that will set well and not run (I've used it on curtains before and it has never ran or anything). I really don't want to be bothered doing separate washes for the dyed diapers.<br><br>
Does Ritt work for diapers?

Ok, here's the deal with Rit: The company website says that the Bulk ProLine is non-toxic, but they don't say anything about the little boxes of dye you can buy, which seemed kind if fishy to me.<br><br>
Also, Rit bleeds. A LOT.<br><br>
I would not use Rit. Dylon dye is much better.

I've never had Rit bleed! Weird. I've never heard of Dylon. Where can you get that?

You can get Dylon at Craft stores, like Michael's or something. They might even have it at Wal-Mart (if you're into that) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

So is Dylons better because it wont bleed? Or is it better because of what it's made of? I have some dipes to dye and wanted to know what to use.

If there is a local art store that sells procian dye that will work the best on cottons. It will give you true long lasting color but you will need to seel the dye with RETAYNE probably to prevent bleeding.<br><br>
Some moms like dylon. It made my velour look tye dyed which would have been cool but it also made it splotchy. Also your thread probably won't dye with this so just be aware of that.<br><br>
The rit might work but could bleed like crazy. I would try to use RETAYNE to force it to not bleed or fade. When I have done this it works on the FOE really well.<br><br>
RIT works great on FOE but for clothes it can fade or dye uneven. You probably won't know until you dye one or a piece of cloth that is similar fabric.<br><br>
Let us know how it goes.
