How to wash black things

Black clothes can quickly fade if you don't follow the basic rules of laundry. It is hard to find a closet that would not contain black items. It is a universal classic color, suitable in any situation and appropriate in almost all style decisions.

Faded black creates the effect of unkemptness. Another problem is the residue of laundry detergent, which settles on the fabric with white streaks after washing. Read in the article OBOZREVATEL how to return the color to black clothing and rinse out all the powder.

Experts advise an interesting tiphack. To prevent streaks and preserve the saturation of color, they recommend putting black pepper in the compartment for detergents. Opinions of users on the network are divided: some say that the method is very effective, others complain about the risk of damaging the fabric.

Step 1. Wash black clothes in the machine, turning on the normal mode.

Step 2. At the rinse stage, put a little black pepper in the detergent container. One tablespoon will be enough.

Step 3: Turn on the rinse mode. Experts assure that the pepper rinse will give the clothes a rich brightness.

But the use of this ingredient has certain reservations. Read more about the peculiarities of washing with salt in the material.
