Drying after soda ash soak?
  • Sorry to bother you:-(, but can one soak a t-shirt in soda ash, and then spin dry it before dyeing? Read somewhere that you can dye t-shirts after drying, but not sure about spin drying. Using Procion Mx tie dye method btw.

    Many thanks in advance:-),


    P.S. am a beginner dyer, and find this forum very helpful!♥

  • Hi Ts,

    Spin drying your fabrics is perfectly fine. It is, in fact, a quick and handy way to 'wring out excess moisture' when you are doing lots of pieces.
    Glad you are finding lots of info here - and feel free to ask away!
