Preseving Color In Washing

Hi Jennifer, What is the best way of setting dye in material. I want to dye some material, but want to try to preserve that color in future washings.
Thanks in advance for your help!

Dear Joan,
If you follow the instructions, you will have dyed fabric that is colorfast. I have loads of things that get washed every week which are as bright as ever. Get a copy of the catalog from www.dharmatrading.com and read the instructions on the reactive dyes. Remember, your fabric must be a natural fiber – cotton, linen, rayon, or silk. You will need dye, ordinary table salt, soda ash, and Synthrapol. All is available from Dharma except the salt.
have fun,
