Formerly "DISCHARGE PASTE"
Our customers didn’t like the name…so we changed it!
At Jacquard, we take your feedback seriously. Many of our customers have commented that, while they love the product, the name “Discharge Paste” is unpleasant. “Discharge” is the technical term for removing color from dyed fabric, but we understand that it has negative connotations outside the world of textiles. So we acquired the name deColourant, which is more descriptive: deColourant removes color! We think the new name has a nice ring to it.
deColourant is a ready-to-use printing paste for removing areas of color from dyed natural fabrics such as cotton, linen, silk and wool. Unlike bleach, deColourant removes color without jeopardizing the integrity of the fiber.
How does it work?
deColourant is activated by heat. If you don’t like what you’ve done, just wash it out! Nothing happens until you heat the deColourant print.

Apply with brush, stamp, sponge, applicator, stencil or screen print. Allow to dry, then iron on highest setting suited for the fabric type. For extra color removal, iron with steam. A heat gun may also be used, especially if the print is still damp. Color will leave at this stage. After color removal, wash fabric with Synthrapol or a mild detergent to return to natural softness.
- When removing dye from fabric, the resulting color may not always be white.
- Some dyes are more susceptible to color removal than others.
- Test samples are recommended prior to production runs.
CAUTION! May cause eye, skin and throat irritation. Avoid contact with eyes. Avoid prolonged contact with skin. Do not apply by spraying. In case of eye contact flush immediately with water for at least 15 minutes. For skin, wash thoroughly with soap and water. If affected by inhalation of vapor, seek fresh air. Use in well-ventilated area.
