    Dear All,
    Can someone guide me on techniques used for dyeing at home? I have a few dresses,dupattas (cotton/terrycotton) which are in good condition but dull in colour.
    Please do mention the materials and the procedure.Also do mention if we can use the same dyes for synthetics?

    You can dye cotton materials by using batik colours. You get batik colours in Devi stores near chikpet police station.They will give leaflet which explains the method of dying.

    fabric dye powders are available in market in bulk and also one time use powder. Dissolve it in cold water and boil with a pinch of salt. While water is boiling immerse the cloth to be dyed and keep turning with a wooden stick or scale. Switch off the stove and take out the cloth, immerse in cold water and dry in shade. Don`t dye georgette dupattas they will shrink.
