What washing machine temperature does iDye need to be on?
Front load washing machine method: 1. Dissolve the iDye soluble dye packet in approximately two cups of very hot water. 2. For cotton, linen and rayon dissolve one cup salt in approximately one quart of very hot water. 3. If you are dyeing silk you will use 1/3 cup of vinegar instead of salt. 4. Pour the dissolved iDye and dissolved salt or vinegar into the bottom of the washing machine tub. 5. Add pre-wetted fabric. 6. Set your machine for the hottest possible water temperature and longest possible wash cycle. If you are able to extend the wash cycle, do so. The longer you are able to allow the fabric to remain in the wash/dye cycle the darker the color and the better the fixation. 7. When the machine has completed the wash cycle allow it to complete the balance of the wash/rinse/spin cycle. 8. Wash the garment with a mild detergent in cold water and dry. Note: We recommend a thorough cleaning of your washer after you have used it to dye fabric. Most front loading washers collect residual water in the front door gasket and will also hold water in the exterior tub. Wipe down the door gasket carefully and run a short cycle with your normal detergent after completing dye process. (You may want to refer to your Washing Machine Users Manual for cleaning instructions.
