Acid Dye on Nylon Leotards

Hi Again!
I have another simple question ( I think!) I dyed stretch nylon leotards using jacquard acid dye and they came out lighter than I wanted them. I put them through the whole cycle and then washed them after with detergent. Can I dye them again to make them darker? If I use the same amount of dye will this happen??
Thanks! Kristina

the key to acid dyes is to use HOT water. For darker results, simmer on top of the stove. You can rinse in the washer. If you don’t get the color you want, you can add more dye in the middle of the simmering process.
