Before the process to tie-dye, desize the natural fiber/fabric/garment to remove any impurities using our 5 grams Langoors prewash in 1-liter water. To strip any old color from garment use 15-20 grams of our Langoors bleaching powder in 3-liters of boiling water for 5-10 minutes. Rinse 2-3 times in water before next process of tie-dye.
For tie-dye pre-soak process use 125 grams of our soda ash ingredient in 5 liters of water and immerse fiber for 30 minutes. Squeeze tightly and damp dry. Do not rinse. Store and reuse soda ash liquid. (20 grams of Soda Ash per liter of water is sufficient to process. Saturation level of 50 grams of soda ash powder in 2 liters of water is good for 8-10 T shirts.)
For tie-dye direct application process, use dye and soda ash mixed together mix in ratio 1:1 dye with soda ash (each 1 tea spoon of 5 grams) in 200 ml water. Rinse thoroughly and apply directly within 1 hour, as the intensity of dye shall become weak if kept longer.
For ice-dyeing process, randomly sprinkle some soda ash powder on fiber before adding ice cubes topped with dye powder/liquid. Sprinkle/Spray soda ash powder equaling to dye on the ice cubes as extra topping while ice cubes melt on the fiber to merge and react.
