Easy Steps for DYEING 1 Yard of Conductive Ribbon 4-Conductor:

1. Gather the Supplies
2. Fill a stainless steel pot with just enough water for 1 yd of ribbon to move freely (about 2 cups). Turn heat on high.
3. Add an 1/8 teaspoon of iDye Poly soluble dye packet and an 1/8 teaspoon of iDye Color Intensifier to water. Stir until dissolved.
4. Add pre-wetted ribbon and bring to a rolling boil. Maintain temperature and stir frequently for 10 minutes. For uniform color, use constant agitation with a wooden stirrer.
5. Rinse the ribbon in the sink until it washes clear.
6. Machine wash the ribbon in it’s own cycle with a mild detergent and dry.

Note: Utensils and Pot for Dyeing should NOT be used for Food
