So I’m watching Uncommon Threads the other day and someone is dying fabric. She’s talking about how dangerous dyes are, particularly in powder form. She says you should use a mask, gloves, never use pots or utensils that you use for cooking and never dye in your kitchen or around food.
I always dye my yarn in the kitchen, where else am I gonna do it? I don’t use a mask, or even gloves. And I’ve used a big stock pot for dying. It’s huge and I haven’t cooked in it since then, but is it ruined for cooking?? If so, crap! It’s a $50 stock pot!
Oh… I use Jacquard Acid dyes. While I don’t dye stuff very often, I’m kinda concerned. Have I put myself in danger using these powdered dyes so flippantly? :doh:
