Cleanline (formerly Inko Resist) is a completely non-toxic, natural, pasty substance made from Cassava that is applied to the fabric in a design to "resist" dye or paint, using a squeeze bottle, sponge, stamp, silk screen, stencil or brush and allowed to dry before applying dye or paint.
It is great for "faux batik" used with flowable paints like Dye-na-flow and Setacolor for a safe, totally non-toxic event, so it is very popular with teachers. It can be used for the Serti technique with gutta applicator bottles, but the resulting line will be softer and less defined than one with Presist, other water based resists, or Guttas.
It's water soluble so you cannot submerge the fabric into a dyebath (the resist will begin to dissolve). It is also used with thickened dye Procion Fiber Reactive Dye (with thickener added), Inkodye, or with fabric paints like Jacquard Textile or Dharma Pigment Dye. Once the dye or paint is fixed, just rinse out the resist with warm or hot water.
Inkodye (AKA Lumi Co.) is finally out of their massive back stocks of Cleanline, sorry to say, and no more is being made.
Jacquard Products to the rescue! Removable Water Based Resist is their NEW Water-Based Resist, which will do all the same stuff this product did, and maybe do it better? We're excited about this one!
