Important Notes

Instructions

  1. For every pound of dry fabric (i.e. two adult large t-shirts), use 4 ounces of ColorStay Dye Fixative with 3 gallons of water.
  2. Fill a plastic container or stainless steel sink with water. Pour well-shaken ColorStay Dye Fixative into container or sink. Mix well.
  3. Wearing rubber gloves, add ColorStay Dye Fixative to bath.
  4. Add fabric to bath.
    1. If you are working with fabric that was tie dyed or shibori dyed, place the bound fabric into the bath. Placing unbound fabric into the bath could result in dye bleeding into the white areas.
    2. If you are working with fabric that was ombré dyed or dip dyed, Only place the dyed part of the garment into the bath. If you submerge the entire garment, dye could bleed into other areas.
  5. Stir slowly and continuously on and off for 20 minutes. If you dyed the clothing, it is very likely that unbonded dye that is still on the fabric will end up in the bath. That is completely normal and will not alter the results.
  6. Rinse in cool water.
  7. Wash in warm water with a mild detergent, rinse and dry.
  1. Wear rubber gloves to protect hands from getting stained and to insulate them when working with hot water.
  2. For every pound of dry fabric (i.e. two adult large t-shirts), use 4 ounces of ColorStay Dye Fixative with 3 gallons of water.

  4. When water begins to simmer, shake bottle and pour ColorStay Dye Fixative into pot. Mix well.
  5. Add fabric to bath.
    1. If you are working with fabric that was tie dyed or shibori dyed, place the bound fabric into the bath. Placing unbound fabric into the bath could result in dye bleeding into the white areas.
    2. If you are working with fabric that was ombré dyed or dip dyed, Only place the dyed part of the garment into the bath. If you submerge the entire garment, dye could bleed into other areas.
  6. Keep temperature at a low simmer for the duration of use.
  7. Stir slowly and continuously on and off for 20 minutes. If you dyed the clothing, it is very likely that unbonded dye that is still on the fabric will end up in the bath. That is completely normal and will not alter the results.
  8. Rinse in warm water and then gradually cool water until rinse water begins to run clear.
  9. Wash in warm water with a mild detergent, rinse and dry.
