1. SET YOUR TOP-LOADING WASHING MACHINE TO THE HOTTEST CYCLE POSSIBLE, AS WELL AS THE LONGEST CYCLE POSSIBLE. FILL THE MACHINE WITH HOT WATER.


2. SOAKING THE CRINOLINE BEFORE DYEING


ONCE THE MACHINE HAS FILLED, DIP THE CRINOLINE INTO THE WATER, SOAKING THE CRINOLINE SLIP COMPLETELY.  THEN SET THE CRINOLINE ASIDE, MAKING SURE THAT IT IS NOT BUNDLED UP AND THE FABRIC IS LOOSE AND FREE.


3. MIXING THE DYE!


WEARING RUBBER GLOVES TO PROTECT YOUR HANDS, PRE-MIX THE FABRIC DYE ACCORDING TO THE MANUFACTURER'S INSTRUCTIONS IN THE GLASS CONTAINER. THEN POUR THE DYE INTO THE WASHING MACHINE.


4. DYEING THE CRINOLINE


PUT THE CRINOLINE INTO THE DYE BATH. ALLOW IT TO AGITATE FOR AT LEAST 30 MINUTES. MANUALLY RESET THE AGITATION IF A DARKER COLOR IS PREFERRED. AFTER THE AGITATION HAS FINISHED, LET THE CRINOLINE GO THROUGH THE RINSE CYCLE.


5. DRYING THE CRINOLINE


HANG THE CRINOLINE TO DRY. REPEAT THE PROCESS IF A DARKER COLOR IS PREFERRED.


6. CLEAN THE WASHING MACHINE BY RUNNING AN EMPTY CYCLE WITH ONLY DETERGENT AND ONE CUP OF BLEACH.  THIS PREVENTS INADVERTENT STAINING OR DYEING OF OTHER CLOTHES.
