Product Description

Recommended for use with Fiber Reactive Dyes when doing tie-dye, painting, printing and other methods of direct application. Urea is a 'moisture drawing' agent which keeps the fabric damper longer during the curing or fixing process, thereby making for deeper, brighter colors. Fiber Reactive dyes won't "fix" if they dry out!

Urea is also a great dissolving agent and helps dissolve those "stubborn" colors that leave a residue or "freckles" of un-dissolved dye on your work. Just use warm Urea water (1 TBS per Cup) to paste up your dye to get it more thoroughly dissolved. Helps to dissolve more solids into less liquids so great for making the really concentrated solutions you need for tie dye and dye painting, especially the darker colors.

You need about 1/4 cup per quart of dye solution for tie-dye, and about 3/4 cup per quart of chemical water for direct application.

I got WAY more than enough when I ordered one lb. You only use a tablespoon per vat dye color I have a huge amount left.

Keeps the product wet. What more can I ask. Quite uniform and non-smelly.

Quite frankly I'm not exactly sure what this is supposed to do but if the folks at Dharma recommend it I don't see any reason not to use it. I am VERY NEW to tie dyeing and so far everything has come out great--thanks to their great advice!
