Dyed Duvet Cover
We got our hands on this West Elm duvet cover and shams but didn’t love the color. Lucky for us, we were able to remove the color and dye it a color we loved! We’re obsessed with how the “new” bedding turned out. We dyed the bedding in a front loading washing machine which makes this process easy and convenient.
A note about dye and washing machines: If you have never used dye with a washing machine, we get why you would be nervous! Who wants a purple washing machine? Well, maybe us. Nonetheless, we can promise you Rit won’t permanently stain any metal component on your machine. Rit been used in washing machines for decades, dating back to the time when the washing machine was invented in the 1950s. We coined the phrase “Push Button Color!” in the early 60s. With that much history, you can feel confident that your washing machine will stay dye free for decades to come.
With the growing popularity of front loading washing machines, we have found that the dye may stain the plastic parts around the machine; so it’s important
Important Note: If you are dyeing synthetic fabric (i.e. fabric containing more than 35% polyester, acrylic or acetate), then you cannot use this method. Due to the complexity of dyeing synthetics, you must use the stovetop method to maintain an almost boiling temperature for the duration of your dyeing.
