Cushions Bleeding On Cloths

Hello…I saw your column on the net and wanted to ask how I can prevent the dyed cushions from bleeding onto people or clothes. The cushions are on the seat of dining room chairs and look great. However, we fear they may bleed onto people’s clothes and were looking for some sort of waterproofing or protectant spray that you may be able to recommend. Thanks for you help . – Melody

Hi Melody,
If the cushion covers can be washed, you can set the color with Retayne, available at www.dharmatrading.com. If you can’t wash them, and you have experienced this bleeding or “crocking,” I suggest you return them. This should not happen and the retailer needs to know about it.
