      True

    Explanation
    The statement is false because after soaking the fabric in dye, it needs to be rinsed to remove any excess dye before it can be dried. If the fabric is not rinsed, the excess dye can stain other fabrics or bleed onto the skin when the fabric is worn. Therefore, it is important to rinse the fabric thoroughly after dyeing before allowing it to dry.
