No dye release
Posted by silvia on July 30, 2002 at 06:55:39:I mixed my usual Kimia with water boiled with dehydrated limes and
cloves, ascorbic acid crystals, and honey. I let it sit on my warm
patio and after 12 hours nothing. 24 hours and still nothing. I
then mixed more of the same batch of frozed Kimia with just lemon
juice and after only 4 hours I got a decent test stain, after 12 I
got glorious results.
What all do you add to your dehydrated limes to get your henna to
release dye? My trial recipe was a dismal failure!
