Re: PF dying questions. Help! I'm a dye dummy!!
I *think* you can. I think you can agitate them in the wash for the first 15 minutes...just be sure to be nearby 'cause it would suck to have it all drain out prematurely! Maybe set a timer if you know how long your washer agitates for. But after that, I'm sure you could just stop the washer and let it soak. Then rinse, rinse, rinse!
I haven't actually dyed in my machine, but I have rinsed in it. I used a plastic tote that I usually store clothes in to dye my prefolds. I might get brave enough to try it in my washing machine; I'm just chicken that it might stain or leave some dye behind.
A real woman always has a clean house, an empty laundry basket, smells good, is well made-up, slim, healthy, eloquent, and perfectly well behaved...I suspect I am a man.
