Laundry – we do it nearly every day, but it sometimes seems impossible to get it right. With that in mind, here are some of our top tips to maximise the effectiveness of your washing.
How To Stop My Colours Fading With Every Wash
First, turn the temperature down. Hot water can make dyes run, and modern detergents are designed to clean just as well at lower temperatures. It's also better for the environment and energy bills!
Check the label for warnings that the dye is not “colour fast”. This means that the dye is going to run and fade more easily. Wash such items washed separately in cool water.
Turn clothes inside out before washing to reduce the fading that friction within the machine causes.
Nylon and other materials with elastane are susceptible to being contaminated with running dyes from other clothes. If you wash a nylon item with any white in it, wash it with your whites and not colours.
My clothes come out damaged
Always read the care label. If it recommends that you use dry cleaning or hand washing, the garment is likely the item to get damaged in a regular wash. If you do not understand washing labels, read our guide.
Fasten any zips, buttons and clasps before washing to stop them from catching on other clothing.
Wash delicate garments separately or use a wash bag.
