poly blend and fixatives
  • I am planning to dye trousers with Idye and natural and poly. Do I need to use a fixative to stop bleeding?
  • Hi Sue,

    It's not necessary to use a fixative with iDye, but you will want to make sure you wash your finished piece with similar colors and in cold water over the life of the item to retain the brightness of the color.
    If, however, you want to give yourself that extra measure of assurance (in case the garment gets tossed in a warm load or the whites) there is the iDye Fixative. It sure doesn't hurt and if you are using a bright color dye it will help retain the brightness for longer.

    hope this helps
  • thanks so much, Annette. Very helpful
