Product Description
This liquid wetting agent is very helpful when dyeing tightly woven fabrics or for generally increasing evenness of dyeing. Calsolene Oil breaks the surface tension of the water and 'wets-out' the fabric making it easier to dye. Add 2 tablespoons per 8 lb. washing machine load or 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of water before adding predissolved dye. It can also be added to concentrated dye solutions for direct application as in tie-dye and handpainting if the dye is not spreading enough.

It was an optional recommendation but I wanted to give myself every chance to win and get a great RED dyed garment. Calsolene Oil is stated to break the surface tension of the Non-Iodized Salted water so there will be less streaky dye results. That's EXACTLY what happened. Not ONE streak just even beautiful dye. Yay!

Great stuff. Also Accidentally found out it breaks up those hopeless pills and scratchiness that develop in fleece and other fuzzy fabrics over time.

Haven't given this a full test run yet so can't give it a higher rating. I've used it once and didn't really notice a difference but I'm a beginner so I might not recognize it anyway.
