How do you prevent black cotton fabric dye from running?

There are a couple tricks you can use to prevent dyed cotton from running; first is to make sure you are using very hot (boiling) water to color the fabric, second is to add salt (rock or table) in the concentration of 1 cup per article in dye bath.

When the material has reached the color you desire, soak the still wet fabric in a fixative bath from RIT/TINTEX or Aljo dyes. This should be available wherever you purchase your dyes.
