Description

[formerly Diamond Shamrock Chemicals] A trademark for a blend of synthetic dyes that is used as a bluing agent in laundry blue. Liquid Blue is soluble in water, thus producing an even blue tone in the fabrics, unlike many of the insoluble blue powders that had previously been used as laundry blue agents.

See also Laundry blue.
