Dyeing prefolds in washing machine?

I am looking at some tub dyes from Dharma Trading Co. to dye my prefolds in the washing machine. Has anyone tried this? When I've dyed before, it seemed to take lots and lots of water and time to rinse them so I was thinking maybe the washing machine could do all the work? Could I use dylon in the washing machine? I'm thinking about dyeing 4-5 diapers with each color. Thanks!

I didn't dye my diapers in the washer,but I sure did use it to get the dye out. It worked out pretty well. I think I sent all of the colors through 4 or 5 times just the rinse cycle of course and let the machine spin them out.

Thanks for the suggestion! I've always hand rinsed them. I hadn't ever thought about rinsing them in the washing machine. Definitely will try that next time
