Default ALternatives to Rit

So I am getting into dying ( dieing ? dyieing ? ) But there is no shop here in my hometown that sells Rit.

What alternatives are there ? What do I have to look for ? WHat qualities to I have to ask for in a shop ? My guess is that not all powder based colors will work, right ?

edit : oh, and do i get it right, you just mix the powder with water ? nothing else ?
edit 2 : I have some powder at home, labeled "pigment" ( black ). Could I use this ? ^^

The dye needs to work on polycarbonates. iDye Poly is another viable solution. Not sure what you have available there in Switzerland or what you can order online.

Well, I found one shop in germany that sells idye poly. No Rit seller at all in europe, I asked the company by email.

Will try iDye poly then. Hope the letter gets here soon.

Make sure when you do get it that you don't use the color intensifier that comes with it. It makes little globs of junk that mess up the dye. I usually cook 1 pack of dye with 32 ounces of water. Great dye though!

Can only second that: Do not add the intensifier. Made one evening a living hell for me.
