I use rit all the time along with koolaid and jellos (yes jello) + tumeric and other assorted natural things..with rit wash once,rinse, then set in dye bath (do not boil) set on low for 30. mins add vinigar and sit another 5 mins. take out and rinse in cold water..thats it...

Funny thing... I was able to dye a number of skins a beautiful, colorfast, deep purple with Tulip and clean-up was a snap. Small splashes on the counter cleaned right up.
With the Rit the colors refused to go near the feathers... But man do they ever stick to the counter!!!!
To define things a bit better, what I really want is a "bright" chartreuse... a "hot" orange... a highlander green (I consider that a grassy green on the lighter side)... a blue that really stands out, not real dark, but real bright blue (not turquoise)... a really bright yellow, also.
