Frequently Asked Questions

Does Fabric Spray Dye work on all fabrics?

No. Fabric Spray Dye will only work on fabric that can absorb water. We recommend dripping a small amount of water on an unworn section of the fabric you intend to paint and make sure it soaks in. If the water beads up, the paint will not work properly.

What is the typical coverage for one can?

Because there are so many variables that come into play, such as fabric type, fabric color and user technique, it is hard to give a precise estimate for coverage per can. Our general guideline estimates are 3 cans for a smaller chair, 6 for a recliner, and 12 for a full size couch. Please keep in mind that these quantities are general estimates. Depending on the variables mentioned above, additional cans may be needed.

Do you offer Overnight or Express Delivery?

No. The paint is in a pressurized can and is considered hazardous when shipping. Therefore, the paint must ship via ground shipping services.

I want to buy a few cans of paint but I live in another country. Will you ship internationally?

We can only ship within the United States. Please visit the Where to Buy page on for a list of countries that currently stock Simply Spray products.

Can I use Fabric Spray Dye indoors or does it have strong fumes?

Fabric Spray Dye is non-toxic, non-flammable and has no fume odors. The propellant in the can is very safe and is the same propellant used in food products, such as whip cream. The propellant is odorless. Occasionally, you may smell a faint paint odor if you are using a large number of cans indoors. If you have a high sensitivity to smells, you should use the product in a ventilated area to be on the safe side.

Is Fabric Spray Dye safe for children?

Yes! All Simply Spray products are safe for everyone. They are non-toxic and non-flammable.  Simply Spray products are aerosol but do not contain ANY harsh ingredients or inhalants.  Its secret formula is safe and conforms to ASTM-D 4236.

Is Fabric Spray Dye safe to use around pets?

Simply Spray is safe to use on fabrics that will be in contact with your pet, such as a pet bed. We do not recommend that you spray the paint on your pet or near your pet.

How long will it take painted projects to dry?

On average, it will take about one hour for projects to dry to the touch. However, we recommend waiting 72 hours before sitting on any fabric that has been painted.

My can will not spray again. What should I do?

Don't panic. Paint may build up in the nozzle after it has been used. If this happens, pick off any excess dried paint from the nozzle opening, then flip the can upside down and spray to clear the passage. The force of the spray should clear the way. We also suggest storing your used paints upside-down in water if you will not be using them right away (with trigger in off position). If problem still persists after trying those methods, please call us at 401-563-9494 to further trouble shoot the issue.

I accidentally got some paint on my clothing. What can I do to get the stain out?

Fabric Spray Dye is permanent, so be sure to protect any clothing or furniture you do not wish to paint.

If you do get paint on your clothes, wash them as soon as possible. You should wash your clothes using liquid fabric softener because fabric softener breaks down the pigment in the paint. Unfortunately, there’s not a universal solution to remove permanent paint from clothing since all material is different. Keep washing them and put soap directly on the paint and scrub using a washcloth for friction. 

What happens if I get Fabric Spray Dye on my deck or cement?

Fabric Spray Dye is permanent, so be sure to protect any surrounding areas or objects you do not wish to paint.

We always recommend that you cover your work area. Fabric Spray Dye will soak into your deck or cement and can be difficult to remove. You should wash the area with a steel brush and strong cleaner that won’t harm the surface.

What happens if I get paint on my skin?

You can wash this paint off your skin with regular soap, water and a little help from a washcloth. If you wash your hands immediately after using, the paint should come off with little effort.

Should I wear gloves when using Fabric Spray Paint?

Sometimes wearing gloves will cause more of a problem than you would think. The paint will not absorb into the glove and will transfer onto your project. We recommend not wearing gloves. This paint is non-toxic and easily washes off your hands with soap and water.

I am planning to use Fabric Spray Dye outside. Will it ruin my grass if I get paint on it?

We always recommend that you cover your work area. Simply Spray is not harmful to grass, but it will change the color of your grass temporarily.

Do you offer free samples or color swatches so that I can try the paint or color before I but it?

Sorry, we cannot send free samples or color swatches. We recommend buying a single can and testing it on a hidden area of your project to make sure results are satisfactory.

Can I purchase the paint in a container other than a can so that I may put it in my own sprayer?

Our paint is only sold packaged in our cans.

Can I purchase a drum of paint from you?

Our paint is only sold packaged in our cans.

Can I recycle the empty can?

Unfortunately, because the inside of our cans is coated, the can cannot be recycled. However, our paint itself is safe for the environment.
