> I've heard you shouldn't use a washing machine for dying if you want to use it for cleaning later. But I have no personal experience on this front.Not a problem. Most dye manufacturers will recommend running a wash
cycle with bleach before washing again with your machine, and,
personnally, I make a point of running a load of black after each dye
job before washing lighter colours. I've heard that dyes can stain the
plastic parts of some machines; it's not been a problem with mine.
> I'm also not sure it's safe to use the pot for food later.No, it's not.
> I'll have to play with dye the next time I have some around and see what I can accomplish. There's a sort of "misty cloud" effect that seems to come around before the Edo period that I've always liked....Please share :-)
