Sodium acetate may be used to make an aluminum acetate mordant. It is an alternative to calcium acetate. 

Homemade Aluminum Acetate Solution
Aluminum acetate can be made from sodium acetate and potassium aluminum sulfate. Depending on the availability of these materials in your area, this can be cost effective.

To make enough aluminum acetate to mordant 1 kilo of fabric, combine in 3 litres of hot tap water:

  • 150 g sodium acetate or calcium acetate

  • 150 g potassium aluminum sulfate

See naturaldyes.ca for instructions.

Sodium acetate also is a salt that acts as a leveling agent and a buffer to maintain the pH of 4.5 to 5 during the entire dyeing time. The addition of sodium acetate helps to keep the fiber soft and damage free. This is particularly useful when dyeing with Telana dyes.

Available in different sizes in reusable plastic bag. Our rates reflect a growing discount as the size increases.
