Retayne is a color fixative for commercially or home dyed seagrass and reeds that bleed.
Only one application is necessary.
Use approximately one teaspoon or capful per pound of reed in a HOT soak for 20-30 minutes, agitate occasionally making sure all reed/seagrass is covered and submerged. Be generous and add a little extra for darker colors
When dying several coils over the course of the day there is no need to change the Retayne soaking water. Pull out finished coils and add freshly dyed coils to soak.
Rinse in cold water and hang to dry.
