Q: Do I need
to use salt, vinegar and detergent?
A: Salt helps
the dye molecules move into fabric fibers during the dyeing process. It is
supportive when used, and it’s also okey if it is not used. You can still have

balance in the dyeing pool while dyeing fabric types including wool.
Detergent softens the fabric fibers during dyeing. It helps the pores to
expand and distributes the dye evenly on all surfaces. Salt, vinegar and
detergent are supporting products and can improve the quality of dyeing
when used correctly. As a scale, 2 tablespoons of salt, a tea glass of vinegar
and 1 teaspoon of detergent can be used for 10 g of fabric dye.
