Cleaning washing machine after Idye use.
  • Hi, I have a top loader twin tub. Has anyone got suggestions on how to clean the washing machine after I've finished dying?

    Do you do a bleach cycle when you have finished or some other process?

    Thanks - I just don't want my next load after dying to come out tinted with left over dye bath water in the machine's rinse water tank.

  • Hi Rosie,

    If you are using Procion MX dyes or the iDye all you'll need to do is run an empty wash cycle. The only caveat would be to check and make sure that there isn't a build up of soap scum in your tub that might have held onto the dye. If that is the case generally a soapy sponge will suffice to clean that out.
