How to dye clothes in Baldur’s Gate 3

If you enjoyed the overwhelming number of customization options you had while creating your character in Baldur’s Gate 3, then you’ll be happy to know there’s a bit more you can do after picking your race and class. As you adventure, kill, loot, and buy new equipment, those changes will be reflected on your character. Still, as cool as some armor may be designed, it might not be the color you were hoping for. If that’s the case, you’ll be glad to know there’s a simple way to change it with some dye. Like many of Baldur’s Gate 3‘s systems, like doing nonlethal attacks, it isn’t super clear how to actually do it even if you have dye. Here’s the tutorial the game doesn’t give you on how to dye clothes.
