I made a little baby quilt using Kona white and batik scraps. I had always heard that one need not pre-wash batiks, that they were colorfast.
I put my finished quiltlet in the washer and when it emerged, the dye from some of the blue, the purple, and the orange batiks and bled into the white.
I have heard people speak of something called a dye magnet. Do you know anything about this? Or is there something else I can do to get these colors out of the white?
Strange that this is the first time after all these years.
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO SUGGESTED COLOR CATCHERS. I SHALL GET SOME FORTHWITH!!!
