The Simple Things You Can Do To Prevent Dark Clothes From Fading

Follow these simple tricks and your clothes will look great for longer.

1. Skip the wash every now and then:  You should only be washing your clothes when it's dirty and smelly. The wash puts a lot of stress on your clothes and will wear them down quick!

2. Sort your colours when you wash: Although it's time consuming, it's important to separate your lights and your darks. This will prevent your whites from turning different shades of yellow or brown. 

3. Turn your garments inside out: During the wash cycle, your clothes will be tossing and turning and the fabrics can get trapped in the metal or zippers which will cause your fabric to tear. You should turn your clothes inside out to prevent this. 

4. Use cold water: The warm water makes the fabric much more vulnerable to the friction of the wash cycle. Avoid it if possible.
