Urea increases the solubility, and therefore the brightness and intensity, of dyes when applying them directly such as in printing or painting with fibre reactive Procion MX or Acid dyes, it is not normally used when dyeing in large volumes of water. As a humectant it retains moisture even when dried, and this boosts the colour yield of the dye during the fixing stage. Use with Manutex or sodium alginate thickener when printing, painting or applying dyes directly.
