    I need sage green FABRIC dye for a white cotton coverlet. Will the dye discolor the washer?

      Hi Jane, Thanks for reaching out. If you have a front load washer, plastic or rubber parts may be tinted but will not stain laundry. For a front load washer, we advise to make sure to wipe around the inside of the lid and pour a little bleach through the internal dispenser as dyes can get into these areas. Rit does have a recipe for sage green, however, one of the colors in the recipe has been discontinued (sea foam green). A recipe was created for sea foam green, which means you would first have to mix this recipe and then add a portion of it for the sage green recipe, which can be found on page 6 of this link: https://www.ritdye.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Rit_FavoriteColors_2000_FINAL.pdf. You might find it easier to review out 500+ recipes for a similar shade of green by going to: https://www.ritdye.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/ColorRit_FINAL.pdf Hope this helps!

    Hello, I’m happy to hear that RIT is earth friendly. However, cleaning up with chlorine bleach is NOT earth-friendly. It’s the total opposite. Is there anything that can be used instead of chlorine bleach? What about Oxy Clean or something? Thank you.

      Thank you for reaching out! We would suggest trying Oxy Clean as a replacement for the bleach when cleaning the machines. Throwing in some old towels/rags and some hot water will assure that you get rid of all the dye and any residue left behind. Hope this helps!
