    No. You only use it once and you're good to go.

    I think you're better off using Synthrapol for batiks.
    Check the Dharma Trading website.

    Retayne and Synthrapol do different things. Synthrapol washes out and captures excess dye and keeps it from depositing back on the fabric. Retayne helps to better "set" dye to the faric. I hand dye and use both: Syntrapol to get rid of the extra dye and Retayne to keep what did set on the fabric "attached" better. Batiks sometimes have extra dye that hasn't been fully washed out so Synthrapol might be better, but it won't "set" dye that has trouble attaching itself.

    I just finished talking to the people at Dharma Trading. http://www.dharmatrading.com/index.html

    You can get Retayne shipped internationally to most countries. Check their shipping info link. They are really great people. They have the patience of a SAINT to answer all my questions.

    I use Shout Color Catchers, purple is the color that bleeds the most.
