dry clean only silk
  • I want to immersion dye an unlined silk dress that is 'dry clean only'.

    I have washed many dry clean only things, why can't i use an acid dye on it?

    it is a cafe au lait(coffee with extra cream) color and i want it a more yellowy or reddish color like caramel, cinnamon or copper color. was thinking of using the ochre yellow on it?
  • Hi,
    You can use acid dye on this garment BUT it may shrink so be aware of that before you proceed as acid dyes are hot water colors.
