x-posted, sorry. i dyes some silks with kool-aid that turned out wonderfully, except for the red ones. they keep running no matter how much i seem to rinse with cold water. any ideas what i am doing wrong? thanks!
Is the water pink?<br><br>
It is the nature of the reds. You can try soaking in a vinegar/water mixture, but pretty much you just need to keep rinsing. I know when I dye with Kool Aid, the reds are the only colors that run during rinsing. As long as the playsilk is still red, it's not a big deal.
