Alot of new trends are coming up in 2010 and even though Colored Crinoline isn’t exactly new I believe we will see alot more of it in 2010.
How To Dye A Crinoline In A Washing Machine
- Fabric Dye
- Large glass container
- Rubber Gloves (optional)
- Top-loading Washing Machine
- Start the washing machine and allow it to fill with the hottest water possible. Choose the most extended wash cycle, and a load size that allows the crinoline to easily move within the machine.
- Once full, dip the crinoline into the water, so the entire garment is soaked. Then remove and set aside. Make sure the fabric is uncrumpled and completely unfolded.
- Turn the crinoline inside-out, so that the netting is facing outward.
- Pre-mix the fabric dye in the glass container. Then add to the washing machine.
- Wearing rubber gloves, add the crinoline to the dye bath. Allow it to agitate for at least 30 minutes. Reset the cycle for another 30 minutes of agitation if a darker color is preferred.
- After the agitation cycle, let the crinoline finish out the rinse cycle in the washing machine.
- Hang to dry.
- If a darker color is desired, repeat the dyeing process.
- Clean the washing machine by running a large, hot water cycle and adding detergent and one cup of bleach.
Once the crinoline has been dyed to the color of choice, it should be laundered on its own with a mild detergent to help remove any lingering dye residue. Once the item is dry, the crinoline is ready to show off on the wedding day.
