How to Dye Clothes in Breath of the Wild

After entering the Kochi Dye Shop talk to Sayge. He will then talk to you about what you want to do. You can dye a set of clothes you're wearing or revert dyed clothes back to their original colors. A dye takes effect on every item Link is wearing. The process costs 20 rupees and five items of the dye's color.

Choose the items you want to use to make the dye

Once you've chosen the color your want to use you'll be taken to your inventory, from which you'll need to select five items of the dye color. It's worth bearing in mind that some of the items you can use are a lot more valuable than others. You don't want to be using Diamond to make a white dye when you could be using Hylian Rice or Silent Princess.
