The next day I wanted to wash the cloth. First I had to iron out the soy wax from my batik. Next there were a few pieces I didn't want to fade so the first time in my life, I bought some Retayne from ProChemical and Dye. I also bought some more pre-reduced indigo crystals, and turquoise and olive dye. I washed the ones I kind of wanted to fade but not much color escaped.
Then I washed the remaining pieces in Synthropol and Retayne.

I love this batik but then again hot wax and dye are my faves.
I'm pretty happy with this one.
