Color Remover can remove dyes and stains as well as whiten any natural fabric, rayon and some nylons. It does not work on polyester. Color Remover requires high heat, which may be problematic for wool. It is not bleach. It can also be used for discharge techniques.
Notes: When removing dyes, the fabric color does not always come out white. A completely different color may result. Always test first. Utensils and pot used for color remover should not be used for food.
In an enamel or stainless steel pot dissolve Color Remover in enough hot water to cover fabric. Use 3-5% by dry weight of fabric. Heat to 185ºF/85ºC, add fabric and continue heating. Color Remover works best at a rolling boil. Keep fabric moving for 10 to 20 minutes or until color has left as desired. Wash with mild detergent in cool water.
Note: When removing color from fabric, remember all dyes behave differently. Results may vary. Always test first.
CAUTION: Harmful if swallowed. Give water or milk if swallowed, and call a physician. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of reach of children. Do not expose to excessive heat.
