Can My Swimsuits Be Dyed? If Yes, How?

The swimsuit is a must-have item in summer. In order to make two piece swimsuits more distinctive and better, some people like to dye their swimwear to meet their individual needs and aesthetic needs. So can the swimsuit be dyed?


1. Can Swimsuits Be Dyed?


Generally, we do not recommend dyeing swimwear.


1) The Choice Of A Dye Is Very Particular.

The choice of dye directly affects the beauty of the swimsuit. If the selected dye is difficult to color or the color is not pure, it will directly affect the appearance of girls one piece swimsuits, and will even make the originally beautiful swimsuit look ugly.


2) The Water Resistance Of The Dye.

If the quality of the dye is not good, after coloring, it will cause fading. If you are in a public swimming pool, this is not only a shameful thing, but also affects the quality of the water in the pool and affects other people enjoy swimming.


3) The Health Of The Dye.

We know that swimsuits are in direct contact with our skin, and if the selected dye is of poor quality, it will cause damage to the skin.


Of course, if you want to meet your own aesthetic and individual needs, swimsuits can still be dyed, but you need to pay attention to details when dyeing.


2. Tips Of Dyeing Swimsuits


When dyeing full body swimsuits, the dye must be the carefully selected. There are three common swimsuit dyes.


1) Acid Dyes

It is a kind of dye that is dyed in acid medium. Most acid dyes contain sodium sulfonate, soluble in water, bright in color and complete in chromatography. It is mainly used for dyeing wool, silk and nylon (POLYAMIDE). It can also be used in leather, paper, ink, etc. There is generally no coloring power for cellulose fibers.


2) Basic Dyes

Dyes that can dissociate into cationic pigments in aqueous solution are classified as cationic dyes. Since basic dyes have poor light fastness and fast color fastness after dyeing, they are now less used for fabric dyeing, and are mainly used for coloring cultural and educational supplies, paper and manufacturing lakes.


3) Disperse Dyes

The molecule is small and does not contain water-soluble groups in the structure. It is uniformly dispersed in the dyeing liquid by the effect of the dispersing agent. It can dye polyester fiber, acetate fiber and polyester amine fiber. It has become a special dye for polyester.


3. Ways Of Dyeing A Nylon Swimsuit


1) Choose an acid dye for nylon strapless one piece swimsuits. Acid dyes can provide the brightest and longest lasting color for your suit without bleeding. The most common trade name for acid dyes is jacquard. Check the label on the suit to make sure it is nylon or nylon/spandex blend. If you want to dye on another color, make sure to choose a dye that is much darker than the original color. For example, if your clothes are yellow, choose black or dark blue dye for best results.


2) Wash your off the shoulder one piece swimsuit before dyeing. Soak clean clothes in warm water for an hour in advance. This will relax the fiber and make the dye more effective


3) Prepare a work space to easily clean up all spills. Have rags and paper towels on hand, and consider covering the table or counter with plastic tablecloths or old towels. Use rubber gloves and pliers to protect your hands.


4) Fill the cauldron with enough warm water to cover the clothes. Make sure that the one piece cut out swimsuit can float from the bottom of the pot, so that all fabrics can be accessed through the dye bath. Place the pan on the stove. It is important to use an oversized pan to avoid bubbling hot water and dye. After determining the amount of water, remove the swimsuit from the pot. You need to add the dye to the pot and stir well before putting it back.


5) Dissolve the powdery dye in the pot, then add the clothes. While stirring the mixture, turn on the stove over medium heat. Wait 3 to 5 minutes for the powder to completely dissolve. Add clothes and stir gently to expose all fabrics to the dye. Try to spread your clothes in the bathtub.


6) Bring the dye soaking to 200°F (93°C). Increase heat and watch until the mixture begins to boil slowly.


7) Add 1⁄4 cup (59 ml) vinegar or 1 tablespoon (15 ml) citric acid. After the first five minutes of boiling, stir the vinegar or citric acid into the mixture. Avoid pouring acid directly on clothes.


8) After 30-60 minutes, take off the revealing swimsuit. The longer the clothes are placed in the dye, the darker the color. It is important to stir the mixture occasionally. When performing the operation, please pay attention to the darkening of the color. After reaching the desired color, please take off your swimsuit.
