reneea Posted March 13, 2012 Report Share Posted March 13, 2012 My first custom quilt has two blocks that are bleeding no where else on the quilt is there any bleeding. Customer did prewash fabric but for some reason these blocks did bleed and of course it is red. I've informed my customer and she has given me permission to wash the quilt in synthrapol with shout color catchers. My question is how to do this in a front loading washing machine all the information I've found talks about top loading machines. Should I do the following: choice A 1) express cycle hot/cold total time 27 minutes 2) synthrapol 2 teaspoons is this the correct amount 3) color catchers 4 sheets 4) spin medium choice B 1) delicate cycle warm/cold total time 37 minutes 2) synthrapol 2 teaspoons is this the correct amount 3) color catchers 4 sheets 4) spin medium unable to doe hot w/ warm rinse on my machine the warm/warm cycle is the heavy duty cycle and last 71 minutes I don't think I can wait 71 minutes to see if it worked! choice C 1) use tub fill w/ hot water ~ 1/3-1/2 full 2) synthrapol ? how much 3) color catchers 4 sheets I'm a little nervous about doing this just my luck the whole thing turns pink! Any one who has done this in a front loading machine or know's how this is done or can give any suggestions please help!
