Using iDye on fleece in a front load washer
  • I know that iDye is supposed to be used only in a stove top method. I bought a large pot, only to find that it cannot be used on my glass stove top. If I try putting it in my front loading washer, can I get it hot enough to dye at all? I just need to color to be a tan instead of white, and the color I purchased is brown.
  • Hello,

    Dyeing the polyester fleece in your front loader will not give you very satisfactory results. Polyester is quite difficult to dye unless you use very hot water (near to full boil depending on the specific fiber). At best you will achieve a pale shade of the color you are after.
    And just a reminder to all...when using your washing machine to dye be sure to read the directions regarding follow-up cleaning.
