I do not know what the instructions say, but what if you removed it and just let it sit and air dry?

Might need more heat to open up the pores in the nylon for it to take the dye. Either that or $300 and I’ll sell you mine. Smile

My experience with dying nylon, is that the dye bath needs to be boiling, and the nylon needs to be un-pigmented.
