Default Rit Dye Sink/Bucket Method

Hello,

I know most people use the stove top method for dying and I totally understand why. However, I am wondering if anyone has done this using the other methods such as sink or bucket by either using hot tap water or boiled water from a kettle? Trying not to get the stink eye from the wife...

Does this work just as well? I am looking to dye plastic wheels.

Thanks in advance.

I've done very little dying (that sounds odd but good)
pot of water on the stove with a plastic gallon jug with the top cut off in the water secured with the dye water mix in the plastic jug, when you're done throw away the plastic jug and dye water, no mess

most likely get stink eye either way

My stainless steel cook pot did not get stained at all. If she is really worried, go to Goodwill and buy a cheap kettle for a few bucks.

Thanks, good to know about SS pots. I'm still scared sh*tless of the stink eye so will probably try the 1G water jug method.

Well....Did the method suggested above but I think I have user error!



Hoping time would turn purple to black



No...



Will try to dye it w/ the other half of the bottle. (I thought 1/2 of bottle w/ the 1/2G of hot water was enough...Guess not.)
