    and left for 10 hours .

    Is this could be an Instead of the process of steaming

    What is the best solution for fixative acid dyes , far from the steaming


    thank you
  • Hello,

    To my knowledge steaming printed Acid Dyes is the only way to ensure wash-fastness. Temperature alone will not suffice, the steam is necessary and it is also necessary to bring the temperature with steam to at least 200f/94c.
