Scour for Cellulose


Everything you need to scour cellulose fibres.  60ml of Synthrapol & 500g Soda Ash. This combination will prepare your fibre to accept the dye most readily. 

Synthropol is a non-ionic a soap that is used for scouring and to remove excess dye particles from synthetic dyes that could cause back staining on fabric.  Use sparingly, 10ml per lb of fiber.

Soda Ash is the common name for Sodium Carbonate Na2(CO3). Sodium carbonate is used to scour cloth, as an alkali, and as part of the mordant process for cellulose fibres. We sell anhydrous sodium carbonate (soda ash), which is twice the strength by weigh of hydrated sodium carbonate (washing soda). Most dye recipes are formulated for soda ash not washing soda.
