Iron in compost?

Asked October 3, 2019, 12:28 PM EDT

I have about 2 gallons of dye I made from wild walnuts. I strengthened and darkened the dye with rusty iron. All the solid material has been removed, the dye is weak now as I have used it twice. Can I pour this remaining solution on my compost pile or will the iron ruin it?

We think you will be fine putting the remainder into your compost pile.
