iDyeing cotton w/o using washing machine?
  • A friend told me there are instructions inside the packet!
  • Thousands of people have dyed using their washing machines without issue. It is important that the machine drains properly and that a full, empty cycle be run through after completing the dyeing process. I, personally, set it to an extra large hot water load, add bleach and let it go through the full cycle. It also helps to take a bleach water soaked rag and clean around the doors and edges of the barrel.

    However, if you do not wish to use your machine, you can follow the stove top directions (those will give you the absolute best results). Or use a plastic bucket for your dyebath. You'll just need to make sure that you agitate the dyebath enough.
