Equipment

While many of the utensils and equipment used for dyeing are already used in your kitchen some dyeing components are not edible.  Dyeing utensils and pots should be dedicated to dyeing only and need to be stored in a separate location from kitchen equipment.

Protective clothing should be also be used in order to protect the one dyeing from heat, stains, and chemicals and includes: comfortable chemical/heat resistant rubber gloves, aprons, and footwear.
