I was wondering if anybody out there knows how to neutralize the scent of rust/iron and egg?
I usually use a combination of these two items when doing my eco prints, and the resulting odor lingers must longer than I would like it to. Even after washing and rinsing. It does dissipate after many washings….. but was hoping for a more quick result!
Do you think that a soak in water with baking soda would help?
I have been doing a bit of dyeing. Three more silk slips (that are listed on etsy, even with their lingering odor).
I have another one waiting to be washed…. I like it the most, of the ones I have done so far (I’ll post a photo of it this coming week). There is a crease along one side that blocked the prints, and that bothers me….. although Lilly and Jeph seem to think that it’s not problem. I’ll go with their opinion! I tend to be a ‘task master’ and am too finicky with anything I make…. always looking for ‘perfection’.
I also have a handwoven wool/silk scarf that I printed….. I’ll wash and photo it too this coming Monday.
And I have a peace silk scarf that I wove last week that is waiting to be printed.
Long over due update….. sorry!
