Fine refined salt (for textile dyeing)

Salt is used in the dye process. The way the dyestuff bonds to the fibers is very important – and the most permanent, colorfast dyes are the ones that are most tightly attached to the fiber molecules. The salt acts like a glue to hold the dye molecules in place. That means the textile effluent contains both dyestuff and salt (lots of salt!).
