Someone on the board was kind enough to send me an extra bottle of Retayne and Shout Color Catchers. I've been soaking my fabric in hot water...someone mentioned they found some batiks didn't bleed until the second washing because the wax resist didn't come off until the second washing so I want to get any leftover wax resist.
I'm almost all done pre-soaking so I'll be ready to use the Retayne soon. I'm wondering about throwing all the fabrics into one batch (was going to do them by hand rather than machine). I have various different greens, anything from olive to bright green. Some hardly bled while some bled like a slaughtered hog. I have just fat quarters and quarter yards so I'm thinking maybe I could do them one at a time and using 1 tsp. of the Retayne (it says a TBSP for every yard). Would that even work?
