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.

the water is really, really red, not pink. i'll try the vinegar soak just in case. it's hard to believe any color at all is left in the silks so much has rinsed out.<br><br>
thanks!
