  • Improving the colour fastness of the selected natural dyes on cotton Part-I
    In this article we review how to improve the colour fastness properties of natural dyes with 5 dye fixing agents. Eco-friendly mordants such as alum, stannous chloride and ferrous sulphate are used. Annato dye is selected because this source produces fugitive colours on cotton. A pre-treatment with myrobalan has been given for better dye uptake. After dyeing, the sample is post treated with 5 dye fixing agents such as alum, ammonia, lime juice and calcium chloride for better colourfastness of natural dyes on cotton.
