Softer color is the result of less dye and stronger color is when more dye has been used. You should add water softener in the bowels. You can use a strainer or a slotted spoon when you add beads in the colored bowls. Leave the beads to stay for 20 minutes. While using the strainer, lift the dye from the bowl while making sure that you drained the extra dye.
