Tintex is Available at Dollarama Stores

18 Comments Tell us how you dye with #TintexDye

Tintex is available with new packaging at selected Canadian Dollarama stores. Stores have our new 50g size of assorted dyes. You can use the Dollarama store locator and contact the store to ask about dye availability (fabric dye is found in the arts & craft aisle of Dollarama).  Use the 50g boxes for 1-pound (454g) of a light colour or 1/2 pound of a dark colour (*dark colours use twice the usual amount of dye).

Available Dye Colours in Different Packaging:

The Dollarama dye colours are a good mix of bright and neutrals that are perfect for any project. Remember you can always mix 2 or more dyes together to create even more dyes. You can also make any colour a pastel by using less (do a dye colour sample test first).

Scarlet Red, Fuschia, Tangerine Orange, Brilliant Yellow, Forest Green, Navy Blue, Purple and Black fabric dye is now available in special packaging!

Dollarama Tintex Fabric Dye 50g Boxes

Prints, patterns and stained fabric may not dye evenly. Avoid dyeing fabric treated with special finishes. Tintex is a hot water dye that is not for 100% polyester or 100% acrylic fabric. Tintex is for most washable fabrics like: cotton, linen, silk, nylon, wool. Blends are dyeable, if 65% is made of suitable fabric. 

If you need to dye a dark fabric a new lighter colour, you can lighten fabric with Colour Remover. The process will create an off-white or cream colour base colour. You can 'overdye' but the existing colour will effect the results, you can counter that with colour theory

It is important to prepare your material before dyeing. Make sure to wash fabric without using fabric softener and keep it damp before starting. It is helpful to do a small fabric colour test on a scrap or unseen area of your real fabric or if needed you could substitute a white paper towel only if your fabric is white. Wear rubber gloves and protect work area from staining.

      Salut Ghisceline

      En général, la teneur en textile et en tissu peut avoir un impact maximal sur les résultats de teinture. Le nylon est teint avec Tintex, mais votre tissu peut avoir été traité en raison du processus de fabrication.

      Votre robe peut avoir une «finition spéciale» qui empêche le colorant de pénétrer.

      Vous pouvez laver votre robe avant de teindre et, encore humide, essayez de teindre à nouveau. Vous pouvez également essayer des températures d’eau plus chaudes ou un temps de teinture plus long. Il est possible que votre robe ne puisse pas être teinte si vous modifiez votre technique de teinture et n’obtenez pas de meilleurs résultats.

      Salut Marjolaine,

      À l’heure actuelle, de nombreux magasins Dollarama auront notre teinture, mais vous pouvez contacter votre magasin local pour savoir s’ils ont nos produits.

      Hi Curtis,

      Tintex is available at selected Dollarama stores throughout Canada; there is a chance that the stores that you visited may not have dye. The staff may be able to direct you in the right direction.

      In general, our dye can often be found in the ‘craft supply’ area. Dye may be displayed on the top or bottom of those shelves (or even in another aisle depending on the store setup). Sometimes fabric dye can be displayed in the laundry or shoe polish areas of other retail stores.

      Hi Mary,

      We appreciate that you have been using our products for years and are sad to hear that you were not able to buy in your area until recently.

      The Dollarama staff may know if they have more Tintex in another location and/or when they will restock.

      Our products are also available online.

      Hi Linda,

      Colour Remover is designed to lighten fabric colour. It may help you remove or lighten some or all of the blue dye from your towels. You are welcome to experiment and see how it goes. If you have already bleached them and the colour is still remains there is a chance that your results could vary. The only way to know is to get a box and see how it goes on your fabric.

      Whitex Wonder Whitener actually uses blue optical brighteners to make white fabric appear brighter. You may not need to use Whitex in this case, unless your towels are dingy looking from the bleach that you used. If you decide to use Colour Remover and it is able to lighten or remove the blue dye you could in theory use Whitex.



      If the blue still remains you could optionally dye them a totally different colour (after lightening them first) or over dyeing (dyeing without lightening the existing colour).

      I have 6-new,cotton white towels that were washed in hot water with a blue towel. I have washed them twice with detergent & javex, oxyclean without any change in colour.
      The towels are blued with blue lint. How do I whiten the towels?
      Whiten Wonder Wintex? Are there other options?

    12. Hi Kerry July 25, 2017

      We are sorry that you couldn’t purchase black Tintex at the Harbour Centre Dollarama in Vancouver. Black is the most popular dye that we have. Many people appreciate how practical and easy it is to dye their faded black fabric.

      The Dollarama staff may have been able to tell you if there was more product in the back.

      Hi Mark,

      We are sorry that you were unable to purchase Tintex in your area.

      The new packaging is only available at ‘selected’ Dollarama stores. It may be helpful to ask the store manger about Tintex so they know that there is interest in fabric dye at that location.
