Anyone dyed a Disana soaker?

DD wears a pair of Disana pull on pants for nights, they're a very boring cream colour, has anyone successfully dyed them?

You should be able to dye them but you will have to strip the lanolin first!

Hanna I was thinking of you when I made this post - would they be something you could dye in the style of your nappies? If so, would you be willing?

I just this evening painted a Disana soaker with Kool Aid! :) Not that I'm very talented! :hohoho: Just did a mix of green & orange - not bad for a first attempt, imho! LOL Will have to post pics when it's dry. I went ahead and put it in lanolin tonight...hope that was OK to do before it dried from the dying job?! Was hoping the crotch area would felt slightly, as I have lanolised it several times and it still isn't really waterproof enough. So we'll see after it dries!

I had my sister bring me over packs of Kool Aid! :hohoho: (She's come over to help with the little ones since I'm due to have baby any day now!) I think she thought it was a bit of a funny request from me, but she got to see why I wanted it anyway! :D
