jacquard textile - washing machine method?
  • Hi,
    I can only find Jacquard textile in my area(as opposed to the acid dye by Jacquard), and I need to tie-dye 25 T shirts. Is it possible to use the Jacquard textile paint in the washing machine? I need to complete the project by Thursday of this week, so I don't have a lot of time to order the materials online. I would reallllly appreciate any advice/hints.
    Thanks sooooo much!

  • Hi there,

    The Textile Paints will not work in the washer. They need to be directly applied to the fabric and will only be effective (in terms of bonding) if the dilution of the paint remains at or below 25%. If you do order dyes you will need Procion MX dyes - so long as your tees are 100% cotton (or some other cellulose fabric).
