Easy-to-use iDye Fixative can be used on most 100% natural fabrics (silk, cotton, linen, rayon). Not for synthetic fabrics.

iDye Fixative is a cationic polymer used as a post dye treatment. For use with natural fibers (cottons, linens, rayon, hemp, etc., and silk and animal fibers). iDye Fixative increases wash fastness, stops bleeding, and helps prevent back staining. iDye Fixative can also be used with other negatively charged dyes such as Procion MX, Concentrated Vinyl Sulphon, Remazol dyes, and commercially dyed fabrics that may bleed due to incorrect fixing.

FOR BEST RESULTS: Prewash garment to remove any sizings, softeners or finishes. While iDye Fixative will aid in wash fastness, it is recommended to launder dyed fabrics in cold water with like colors.

NOTE: Utensils and pot used for this process should not be used for food.

FIVE SIMPLE STEPS FOR GREAT RESULTS:

1. Dye garments with iDye according to iDye instructions.

2. Rinse excess dye out of garment with additional wash cycle, in cold water.

3. Fill washing machine with just enough warm water for the fabric to move freely.

4. Add 2 tablespoons of iDye Fixative per pound of dry weight fabric, agitate to mix, then add damp fabric.

5. Run the garment through wash cycle.

Why Order A Swatch?

Why order a swatch?

At Tessuti Fabrics, we believe it's really important to be sure that what you see is what you get. Unfortunately we simply can't guarantee that a fabric pictured online appears exactly as it does in real life. Colours will always vary from monitor to monitor, smartphone screen to smartphone screen. For this reason we strongly recommend that you buy a fabric swatch before purchasing your fabric. It's important to know that Tessuti Fabrics does not give refunds or exchanges on fabrics once cut. Purchasing a swatch will take the guesswork out of your purchase and eliminate the possibility of fabric buyers remorse. And that's never a good feeling.
