Hi guys,
I learned very well, thanks to your advice, how to fix the bleeding of the red color. Sodium hydrosulphite and steamer! Customers are satisfied!
Now the difficulty level increases : how to fix the bleeding of green and blue colors?

Thanks!!!!

There is more difference in the type of dyes than in colors. Synthetic dyes or vegetal dyes and what fibers usually is more important than the color.

Since synthetic dyes are more common and I assume your speaking of wool and cotton fibers, start with a reducer first. The same process you might use on red.

Start with your least aggressive options first. Go stronger only if needed.
