Product Description
Idye color remover removes color. Surprise, surprise, surprise! That's right, we are all about the unexpected around here. Use this little packet of color remover to remove color, lighten color, or brighten whites. It's like a bleach, but not. It contains Thiourea Dioxide, a color removing agent which is safe to use on silks, unlike chlorine bleach. In fact you can use it on a plethora of fabrics! It takes out iDye, and you can test it on other dyes as well. One small packet of iDye color remover will treat 2-3 pounds of fabric.
FIVE SIMPLE STEPS:
1. Fill a stainless steel, aluminum, or enamel pot with just enough water for the fabric to move freely. Turn on a medium to high heat.
2. Add the iDye Color Remover soluble packet to water and stir.
3. Add garments and raise temperature. For cotton, wool and silk bring temperature to just below a simmer. For polyester bring to just below a boil.
4. Maintain temperature and stir frequently for 10 to 20 minutes, or until color has left as desired.
5. Wash the garment with a mild detergent and dry.

I used two packages on less than a half pound of spun wool and followed the directions and though it removed the colors that it had been dyed the basic color came out a yucky green overall.

This product did remove most of the color from the wool knit item I used it on but it took a long time. I had to boil the item for about an hour to get most of the color out. There was a tinge of color left but for my purpose that was OK. I am not sure I would have ever gotten the item to come out white. Fortunately I intended to felt the item later after redying it because it was partly felted by the time I took it out of the dye remover process. The dye remover does smell pretty bad when it is boiling. However I am not complaining because this is about the only way I can use this wool yarn I have (the color is too awful to use as is) and this particular yarn has many other good qualities so I want to use it. Hence dye removal.

I bought this product to discharge dye from silk but before I got a chance to use it for that purpose I thought I might use it to try to brighten up a white spandex microfiber shell I got at Chico's years ago and a once-gorgeous white rayon blouse that had become dingy over the years. It worked great. I'd tried lemon juice peroxide and various commercial products before and none of them had an effect. I just thought I would pass this on.

Works really well-- I even was able to use the same batch twice in qiuck succession. Left my silk as white as it was before my botched first dyeing job.

This didn't remove any color as far as I can tell but I gave it an extra star since it didn't destroy the fabric like some dye removers did.

I used more than enough of the product but it hardly even lightened the fabric. So I bought some RIT color remover and used that-worked like a charm! It's easier and cheaper to get RIT from Walmart than to use this stuff.

This product will have a variable result depending on what dye was originally used on your fabric. I have used this product on two separate occasions on cashmeresilk Chan Luu scarves on the stove top with different results. The first one was orange and dark brown ombre and this removed almost all of the color - the orange became the palest shade of pink and the dark brown pale lilac. I just used this again on an APRICOT colored one and I finally lost patience with it after 30 minutes on the stove top. It never turned lighter than a regular powder pink - unfortunately I had hoped to redye an ecru color with iDye the final result a light warm tan is nice but not what I had hoped...It is easy to use though and the smell which is like a hair permanent smell isn't the worst.

Completely removed the cream color from a 100% cotton t-shirt so it is now white. Took probably 90% of the dark brown color from a linenrayon dress. However with the dress the thread stayed dark brown and in some areas where the fabric had been double or triple layered less color was removed. My plan all along was to redye it to a lighter khaki color so hopefully the contrast thread looks okay. I left both items in the solution for 40 minutes and stirred most of the time.

I used four packets on a wool dress that I wanted to re-dye. It barely took out any of the color.

It failed to remove any color at all from my habotai silk scarf but removed factory-dyed brown from stretchy poly laces. It was my first time using this product so may be Im not right but it looks like you have to stir really ALL THE TIME - that is all 20 minutes or more... I was coming to stir every few minutes and I reckon thats why color was leaving in an uneven fashion - so I wasnt able to get my laces lightened they became of even color only when turned light blue...So well its so cheap its not a big deal to try it out just bear in mind it can fail so dramatically that you probably should order some other products for your cause as well.
