In order to achive maximum wash fastness of a reactive dyeing, the hydrolysed dye which is present in the fibre and held by weaker affinity forces, than covalency, should be completely removed, as otherwise it would lower the wash fastness of the dyeing because of its lower substantivity to cellulose.
