dyeing six pounds of silk sheer curtains
  • Can the six pounds be dyed or tinted in one washing machine load. I am going for a very light lilac.How much dye should I start with, how long in washing machine, and is vinegar better than salt for silk sheers.
  • Hi Esther,

    It is important that your fabric is able to move freely about in the water so if your six pounds of curtains can do that you should be just fine.
    As for your question regarding vinegar vs salt - can you tell me what dye you are using? The best choices are Acid Dye or iDye although you can use Procion MX if you use the instructions for protein fibers.
