Munster- I ws JUST thinking that. I cant imagine that it could be good for the machine.  MY washer has an enamel coated basin thing and I think the salt rocks might jsut chew that right off...
I want to try but dont want to tey at the same time... ah!

I'm going to try it. Tanks. Grin

Also someone posted on another messageboard that designer Zac Posen taught Natalie Portman how-to make a shirt vintage, with something along the lines of this tutorial.
