    <font color="purple"> regular or special dye tub, but you have to dye them while they hang </font> [​IMG]

    hmm are they like certain carp items that can only be dyed the first time they are placed? Ive tried with them hanging and nothing happens.. Thanks for the fast answer though =)

    <font color="purple"> nope, can dye them over and over.... take it from someone who can never get just the right color

    hang them, dye them..... not sure why you're dye tubs are not working.. I've never tried special dyes on them, so not sure how that goes.. would imagine they lose the color? </font>

    Both special dye tub &amp; regular dye tub works just fine on them (I haven't tried true black tub as yet). [​IMG]

    They used to go back to default "no" color when you redeeded them (at least mine did) but since one of the recent patches they retain the color. I kind of liked that they bleached when you redeeded but oh well. You can dye them over and over.

    this came just in time! I just hung some curtains and though the white/bleached look is nice with a keep, I think they might need some color. &lt;shrug&gt;

    It is especially nice because each section is dyed separately, so you can have the panels and the swag portion different. I believe if you use a fresh dye tub that has not had any dyes used in it, they can be "bleached" back to original grayish white color.
