Tips: It is very important to use boiling water to mix your formula. It is important to have Glauber Salts on hand when dyeing. The chemical name is Sodium Sulphate (Na2SO4). Don't confuse Glauber Salts with table salt or coarse salt. The Glauber Salts act as a leveling agent. When you mix your dye solution it should be clear. Add the Glauber Salts if you experience any of the following globbing of solution, flakes in solution and/or murky. Start with 1/4 tsp. increments.
