Make Gauze moist totally and then squeeze excess liquid. Put then into the dye liquor for about 30 minutes. The longer you stay gauze into liquor, the deeper the color is. After 30 minutes, take it out and then waiting for natural oxidation and color change. If you feel that the color is too light, you can continue to dye until you feel it is okay. Then wash it with cold water and waiting for air dry. And there is a gentle remind, the color will fade eventually since dye with plants.
