How to preserve the bright color of things when washing: basic tips

If washed improperly, bright clothes lose their color

Housewives often face a common problem when brightly colored clothes lose their color after the first wash. To avoid this unpleasant situation, you need to take proper care of your clothes.

Various factors affect the loss of color saturation during washing, so you need to follow the rules to keep your clothes looking good. OBOZREVATEL has collected effective methods to help you with this.

Everyone knows the rule that you need to sort your clothes before throwing them into the washing machine. This will not only preserve the color, but also prevent light-colored items from staining.

Add a tablespoon of salt to the drum of the washing machine or to the powder compartment. It helps to retain the color of the fabric and prevents it from washing off.

Vinegar is an indispensable tool for dealing with stubborn dirt and odors. It will also help to keep your clothes rich in color. Add half a cup of vinegar to the washing machine before washing.

Avoid strong detergents for white clothes or bleach. Use special detergents for colored clothes.

Also, do not set the program on the washing machine to a high temperature, as this may cause the paint to wash out of the fabric. Choose a program for delicate clothes, hand wash, or set the temperature yourself to no higher than 30 degrees Celsius.
