RIT Dyeing IKEA Slip Covered Sofa - Klippan

The process is amazingly simple. Soak your slipcover in the bathtub, start your washer and follow the directions on the bottle. I used a mixture of purple and fuchsia to come up with this eggplant color. It was absolute perfection. I adored my purple couches, and if you take a look at the RIT website, the options really are endless! They have a gorgeous honeysuckle rose, the perfect shade of aqua, and so

    I just bought a new slip cover for my chair and I wanted white but it is more of an natural brownish color. I was thinking about dying it white, do you think the white will cover this color okay?

      @Diane Read This is a bit like the people who constantly walk into my office supply store and tell me they need 'both' kinds of printer ink, the color ones and the black & white. I have a similar problem with some dropcloths I want to dye to make curtains, though, has anyone used the RIT bleaching formula first, or should I just stick to good old diluted Clorox? I read a tip from one woman who said she used borax to whiten her beige fabric first, I was thinking to try that first, and then bleach if it didn't work. I'm not trying to make them sparkling white, just lighten the beige color a bit before dying them.
