Question about the fixer
  • I have used the JACQUARD Tie Dye Kit many times - with great results. My friend wants to use this kit, but she has serious time contraints. Basically, she will not have time for the items to sit in the fixer for 20+ minutes. Can she wet the items, tie them and then go ahead and dye them without waiting? Will the dye not set?

    Thanks!
  • Hi,
    The 20 mins soaking time is to allow the soda ash to penetrate into the fabric and prep the fibers for dyeing. If she has to color the fabric right away I would advise leaving the garments wet in a sealed plastic bag after dyeing for at least 24hours to give the dye time to react.
