Product Questions and Answers

Is this mixed in with urea and the color, or is it just used to get the sizing out of fabric to be dyed?

- Asked by Terry on 21-Feb-14

The Soda Ash Dye Fixer is used to improve the chemical reaction between the fabric and the dye so that the color becomes more washfast. It can be applied during a pre-soak, hand dyeing or in a washing machine. Depending on the dyeing method, the Soda Ash may be mixed with urea and dye.

Do I put the soda ash dye fixer in the hot water along with the dye at the same time - in a washing machine?

- Asked by george overlock on 16-Feb-13

Soda Ash is necessary to activate and set Procion MX dye. For tie dye (pre-soak method): Use one cup per gallon of warm water. Soak fabric in mixture for 20 min. Squeeze/wring out excess solution by hand. Do not rinse out. For immersion dyeing cellulose fibers: Use 1/4 to 1/3 cup per 3 gallons of water. Add to dye bath per instructions. For dyeing cellulose fibers in washing machine: Use 2-3 cups per load. Dissolve in 1 quart hot water. Gradually add to dye bath in washer per instructions.

Soda ash works GREAT! I mix it with grated washing soap and it makes a terrific laundry soap gel. My customers are VERY pleased with the results.

Once I started soaking my t-shirts with the soda ash- I definitely could tell a difference in the quality of my dyed products. The dye is absorbed and retained so much better when the soda ash is used. I wouldn't and WON'T dye without it!

For a long time I made dyed shirts without using Jacquard Soda Ash Dye Fixer because I didn't think it would help that much. A friend of mine convinced me to get some from this site. Once it came I made a shirt, but this time I soaked the shirt in the soda ash. I couldn't believe the results when the shirt was finished! The colors were so vibrant and so far they have lasted much much longer. Not to mention the outstanding low price I got it for here at! Thanks guys!
