Can I dye a “Cold Water Wash” or “Dry Clean Only” fabric?
February 10 2018
Rit is only recommended for use with fabrics that can be washed in hot water. If a fabric is labeled “Cold Water Wash” or “Dry Clean Only,” there could be damage to the fabric if it is dyed in hot water. “Dry Clean Only” fabrics are often used in garments with interfacing and linings. These fabrics could shrink and cause puckering and unsatisfactory results.
