Dyeing Futon Cover – Red To Black

I have a futon cover that was red and I’ m trying to dye it black. I have used Ritz Dye and put in two packages an let it set overnight. It didn’t work you can still see the red through the black. What can I do? Thanks for any suggestion, Carole

Hi Carole,
-It’s very hard to get a saturated black, virtually impossible with Rit.
-You are combining colors here and since red is a strong color, it will show through.
-Please read my article on Fabric Dyeing 101 for more information!best,
