Front load washing machine.
  • Have received my idye for natural fabrics to Dye silk in a washing machine. Before ordering I had not seen anything specifying top load machines and I have not found the instructions for front load machines on the website that the packaging refers to . Also what is "very hot water"? Dyeing silk so more specific temperatures would be helpful. Thanks
  • Hi Nora,

    Here is the link to the instructions for dyeing in a front loading machine - the instructions for that specific method start near the bottom of the first page. http://jacquardproducts.com/assets/jacquard-site/product-pages/dyes/idye/iDye Natural Instructions.pdf
    As to your question regarding temperatures - because you are dyeing silk the hottest selection on your machine should be sufficient so long as your hot water heater is set to approximately 120°F.

    hope this helps
