Can anyone recommend any good machine dye for jeans please?

My jeans are grey and I need them black again as ive only had them a short time. I used dylon before but its not really taken.

I was going to say the Dylon one, I've had good results

I've always had good results with Dylon - you can only do one pair of jeans per pack though

Dylon should work, unless your jeans aren't predominantly made of cotton?? I've dyed probably 30 pairs of jeans, dresses and trousers with black dye over the years as often black things fade a bit. Never had a problem. I don't think there's another/better clothes dye out there

Dylon. It is very good.

Yes check what they are made from, it won't take to polyester, elastic, etc.

It's my Joni jeans I'm trying to dye... 71% Cotton, 25% Polyester,4% Elastane.
