dyes on a national level because of bans in CA and CT. Blogger also
says keep an eye out as she is testing the water based alternatives.

don't use anything but oil-based dyes as the
alcohol- and water-based ones have never worked
well for me at all. They rub off on everything,
color saturation is mediocre at best (and only at
the beginning before the dye has worn away), and
the surface always turns out mottled for me.
Oil-based dyes have always worked beautifully for
me. No shedding of color, little to no mottling,
and good, rich color. The EcoFlo line of dyes
better be the absolute bees knees or Tandy will
have lost a great deal of my money.

- I regularly see solvent-based dyes listed on EBay and I'm sure other
companies will respond differently depending on their philosophy about
the dyes' ingredients - some will have a blanket drop of the product,
and some will say 'no shipping to ___". You see this regularly with
plants that are regulated by the potential destination state...
