- Follow these quick fashion hacks to prevent your clothes from looking faded
If you are someone who hardly follows the instructions on clothing labels while washing and throws all your laundry together in laundry, then you are doing no good to your clothes. There are strong chances that your red shorts will turn pink and black will get a new colour, which is grey.
However, you can save your favorite garments by following these simple laundry tips.
• Please follow the tag while washing your clothes because there is a reason why they are on your garment’s tag.
• If you absolutely need to wash all of your garments together, then prefer to wash in cold water. Researchers say that warm water breaks down fibers, which can cause fading and cold water prevents colours from bleeding.
• Always wash dark and light items separately because chances are that your bright colour will become dark after wash.
• Skip the dryer as much as possible. The tumbling of the dryer makes the surface of garment fibers rough, which in turn makes the colours appear faded, even if they aren't.
• Turn your garments inside out because this protects the outer fibers from wearing down when you wash.
• Add a fabric conditioner to your wash because It lubricates the fibers of the fabric during the wash, so they don't wear down as easily.
• Adding half a cup of vinegar will do magic to your clothes as it acts as natural fabric softener and the smell washes away with the rinse cycle
• Lastly, while you're adding cooking ingredients to your load, add a half a cup of salt (118.3 milliliters) to a new garment's very first wash to lock in the color and prevent bleeding.
