Help, please. Can you use iDye in a high efficiency washer?
  • I need to try dying a piece of polyester fleece and wanted to know if I can put it in my high efficiency front loader. If it does not get hot enough for a bright color, will it dye at all or just not do anything. Has anyone tried this?
  • 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.
