The conventional one bath exhaust dyeing system of nylon]/cotton blends with acid dye/direct dye involves a lot of neutral salt which affect dyeability of acid dyes. Because of conventional one bath exhaust dyeing system of nylonl/cotton blends with acid dye/direct dye needs acid dyes adjusted at a neutral liquor, suitable acid dye is limited. To improve dyeing property of nylon/cotton blends, cotton component was pretreated with cationizing agent containing chlorohydrine group in aqueous solution of sodium hydroxide. This study was carried out to investigate dyeing possibilities of nylon/cationized cotton blends with acid dye/direct dye in a non-neutral salt dyebath by one bath two step method. The concentration of direct dye was 1.0%, 0.7%, 0.3%o.w.f. respectively at a non, 1%, 3%owf of reserving agent for being almost equal color strength between nylon and 3% cationized cotton when nylon/3% cationized cotton blends was dyed with acid dye/direct dye at concentration of acid dye(1%o.w.f.) by one bath two step method.
