How to wash black clothes

Black clothes can quickly fade if you don't follow the basic rules for washing them. It's hard to find a wardrobe that doesn't have black items. This is a universal classic color that fits in any situation and is appropriate in almost all style solutions.

Faded and burnt-out black creates the effect of untidiness. Another problem is the laundry detergent residue that settles on the fabric in white streaks after washing. Read the OBOZREVATEL article on how to restore color to black clothes and rinse out all the powder.

Experts advise an interesting life hack. To prevent stains and maintain color saturation, it is recommended to put black pepper in the detergent compartment. The opinions of users on the network are divided: some say that the method is very effective, while others complain about the risk of damage to the fabric.

How to restore the vibrant color of black clothes: a foolproof life hack

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

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

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

And to prevent dullness of colored items, you can use ordinary salt. There are several effective life hacks. Salt is even added at the rinsing stage as a fabric softener. But the use of this ingredient has certain caveats. Read more about the features of washing with salt in the article.

By the way, the express mode is not suitable for all fabrics and makes washing more energy-intensive. Washing at a lower temperature consumes up to 59% less energy, which can reduce electricity and water bills. In addition, the currently popular bio-powders contain special enzymes that lose their effect at temperatures above 30 °C.
