    If I succeed in getting muslim ironed onto freezer paper and get an image to print on the fabric, how am I to color stay the ink so when washed it doesn't make a mess?

    Did you pretreat the fabric with bubble jet set? I think it will wash out if the fabric isn't treated. You can try heat setting it but I never had luck with that.

    I found this home made recipe on line:
    http://rebecca-gatheryeroses.blogspo...ux-bubble.html

    This is what you need:

    1. Arm & Hammer Soda Wash (this is NOT Detergent!). You can usually find this at larger grocery stores in the Cleaning Aisle. I found mine at CREST FOODS here in Oklahoma. But, I know you can get it (or order it) from most any ACE Hardware Stores.

    2. ALUM I found this at my local Wal-Mart grocery store in the Spice Aisle.

    3. Fabric Softener (like Downy, etc.). Available almost everywhere.

    Here is the RECIPE I used:

    2 Tablespoons Alum
    2 1/2 teaspoons Washing Soda
    1/2 teaspoon Fabric Softener
    1 Cup HOT WATER

    Mix all ingredients together. Your mixture will be very foamy and milk looking so let it settle down before using (about 15 minutes). Dip pre-cut fabric into mixture for several minutes (about 10 - 15), rinse and hang to dry for 24 hours.
