Hello,

You can use the Rit Dye Remover in a top load washer. Place the clothes that are stained in the washer and close the door.

Instead of placing the Rit directly into the washer, you will put it in the detergent dispenser instead of using detergent.

Start a hot water wash and allow the dispenser to distribute the Rit Dye Remover. Allow the clothes to complete a full cycle. If need be, because there is still dye you can redo the procedure. Once done wash the clothes with regular detergent. This link goes over the steps I just gave you: http://www.ehow.com/how_7462924_directions-rit-color-remover.html

Please let me know If I can assist you further.

Hello,

I appologise I typed the wrong type of washer, those are the instructions for a Frontload washer.

1)Place the clothes that are stained in the washer and close the door.

2)Instead of placing the Rit directly into the washer, you will put it in the detergent dispenser instead of using detergent.
3)Start a hot water wash and allow the dispenser to distribute the Rit Dye Remover.

4)Allow the clothes to complete a full cycle. If need be, because there is still dye you can redo the procedure.

5)Once done wash the clothes with regular detergent.

Thank you for your response. I suspected that I could do that but wanted some assurance. Hope we're both right. Towels cost a lot less than towels! sheila

Hi,

This link verifies the instructions for both Top loaders and Front loaders: http://www.ehow.com/how_7462924_directions-rit-color-remover.html

When using the color remover I would pre-dilute it in hot water before placing it in the detergent dispenser, so it distributes evenly.

My suggestion if very concerned for your Washing Machine, you may want to do this in a tub or at the laundrymat just to be on the safe side. I understand your concern, but did want to supply the instructions that are available.
