Has anybody dyed their MEOS?

Postby hulagirl » Sun Jun 03, 2007 1:08 pm

I'm thinking about doing this, can't be doing with white nappies :wink: Can I just use Dylon Machine Dye, or do I need to do anything special? And could I wash them in my usual nappy wash. I was thinking of a sort of a yellow or pink, would like to do a purple colour but thought that might run more?

What do you think?

I know Nic has dyed a few nappies with Dylon machine dye and they turned out really good, hot pink. I think once the dye is fixed they can all be washed together but you might want to do a few on their own to make sure.

If you have a look in the DIY section, Nic explained how she did it and there are some photos of her very funky hot pink tie dye nappies in the photo album!

Let us know how you get on!

Ive hand dyed quite a few 'ready made' nappies - some dye better than others. Motherease dye very nicely, tots a bit patchy, bamboo is lovely to dye, but you need to check the backing material as it can end up staying white.

MEOS dye beautifully - if you tie dye, remember to check you have it facing outwards - I was so used to doing nippa nappies which had no back/front that I ended up with beautiful dyeing inside my MEOS, and a white nappy with a small blue streak on the outside :lol:
