Color Remover Instructions

GENERAL INFORMATION AND USE

Dharma Color Remover can be used to remove the color from most cotton, rayon, linen and blends which have been dyed with fiber reactive dyes (Procion) or direct dyes. Not all colors will come out 100%, but they can all be lightened enough for overdyeing. It can also be used to strip color from yarns, fabrics or already sewn clothing.

It will not necessarily remove all the color of all types of dyes from all types of fabrics. It is always best to first do a test before using it on something of considerable value to you

 

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

The instructions below are for one pound of fabric. You can divide or multiply to suit your requirements.

For each pound of fabric put into a pot:

  • 2 gallons water
  • 1 Tablespoon Soda Ash (Fixer)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon synthrapol or liquid dish washing soap
  • 1 Tablespoon color remover

Add the fabric and heat to a boil. While the mixture is simmering, add an additional 1/4 teaspoon of Color Remover every 15 minutes for an hour. (1 extra teaspoon total). Stir gently and simmer for another 15 minutes. Remove and rinse well.

 

DHARMA COMMENTS:

It's a hit & miss afair - works best with Fiber Reactive Dye - with others you just have to try it.
